The United German Hungarian Club will host a conference on Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21 on the expulsion of ethnic Germans from Central Eastern Europe after World War II. The sessions go from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. each day.
The highlight of the conference will be segments of the film series, "Millions Cried… No One Listened," produced by Ann Morrison, director of Ann's Films in St. Louis.
The film segments will alternate with speakers both Friday and Saturday. The conference will be held at 4666 East Bristol Rd., Oakford, Bucks County.
The documentary describes the suffering and forced relocation of 15 million ethnic Germans who lived in rural areas of Romania, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Slovakia, and East Prussia.
The lectures will follow Germans who lived in Russia when WWII broke out, and will take up the topic of civilian detention or internment in the United States from 1940 to 1947.
The conference will end Saturday evening with a colorful German folk dance.
The conference may be of interest to both high school and college students of European History.
