The Sudetendeutsche Landsmannschaft
Sudetendeutsche Landsmannschaft
(English: Sudeten German
Sudeten German
Homeland Association) is an organization representing Sudeten German
Sudeten German
expellees and refugees from the Sudetenland
in Czechoslovakia. Most of them were forcibly expelled and deported to western Allied occupation zones of Germany, which would later form West Germany, from their homelands inside Czechoslovakia
during the expulsion of Germans after World War II. The charter was signed in Stuttgart
in 1950 and committed the organization to the renouncing of revenge and retaliation and promoting European accord. The organization tried to slow down the membership of today's Czech Republic in the European Union
European Union
by demanding a complete revocation of the Beneš decrees
Beneš decrees
which established the expulsion of Germans from Czechoslovakia
after the war and declared them unlawful. The Landsmannschaft is currently based in Munich, Bavaria. Its chairman is Bernd Posselt. It is a member of the Federation of Expellees (Bund der Vertriebenen, BdV). Since Pentecost
of 1950, the Landsmannschaft has organized a traditional convention, the Sudetendeutscher Tag, which mostly takes place in southern Germany, in Augsburg
or Nuremberg. In 1950 the Homeland Association already vowed to reject any form of violence and revenge. Critics say that the Landsmannschaft represents only a small part of the Sudeten Germans. See also[edit]
