Could you tell me how I can locate a Heimatgruppe for my ancestral
village? They lived in Alt Lublitz (Lublilce), in the vicinity of Opava.
I have some letters that were written to my grandmother in the late
1940s and early 1950s thanking here for sending care packages to them after
they were relocated in various parts of Germany.
I recently had some of the letters translated. The letters give a true
insight into what those people endured who were driven from their homes
shortly after World War II and resettled in Germany. In addition, they were
not readily welcomed by the German natives living in some of the various
German towns where they were re-settled.
I would like to try and contact some of my distant relatives -
descendants of those Sudeten Germans who were re-settled.
Any assistance that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
