The agricultural province of Silesia had been in German hands for over 700 years, but as part of the reparations for Germany's defeat in World War II it was ceded to Poland in 1945. With that began a sequence of events chillingly familiar in the late 20th Century occupation, expulsion and forced repatriation. This is the true story of the people affected by this, an account of their suffering and a warning of the dangers of nationalism.
