During and after wwii many ethnic germans were expelled: firsly, afaik from Baltian countries, as a result of Stalin/Hitler agreement (division of Poland, Baltia…) and later also from Poland, Chekhoslovakia.

To describe these people in FRG the word ‘vertriebene’ (expelled) have been used. While in GDR the word was ‘umsiedler’ (resettled).
