I suggest that you do a Google search under "Sudeten Germans."  You'll find 
so much on this group of Germans in that area that you'll be reading for 
weeks on end.  They occupy a very important niche in 20th-century history, 
but it was fame bought at a high price.

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Germans in Czech Republic?

Just a very general question -

I'm curious... were there any German settlements in what is now the Czech
Republic?  If so, what happened to those settlements?  Are there ethnic
Germans still living there now or did they mostly migrate out?

Specifically, in case anyone has specific info, my ancestors are largely
Flatt, Seib, Masschenski (various spellings) Fergin, Reshke, Schmidt,
Strohscein, Fergin, and Pflueger.  They also tended to hang around the Rapp
family a lot.  I can trace them to various parts of Poland and western

Thank you!
