Good article.  I wonder however what concentration of German population it takes to make it on the map of Eastern Europe.

The whole south side of the Wisla (Vistula) River is missing the Germans who were in Ilow, Gabin, Gostynin and Nowe Wies parishes.  The Suwalki region seems too lightly represented as is the region west and northwest of Lodz.  Volhynia appears to be shown fairly accurately.

Maybe I'm just being too sensitive.
