Description
  • Abstract

    The Second World War did not only cause many deaths but also leaded to broad changes in the population and settlement structure. This data compilation shows selected consequences of population movements in the context of the displacement of persons on the population structure in the Federal Republic of Germany and partly also in the German Democratic Republic. Under the command of the first federal minister for matters concerning displaced persons Hans Lukaschek the term ‘displaced persons’ was defined nationwide in the federal expellee law (find the legislative text attached). The data compilation is passed on data published by the Federal Statistical Office and on data from selected scientific publications. The study in hand is subdivided in section A which is based on publications from the Federal Statistical Office and section B which is based on different individual scientific publications. Subsection A1 contains selected data from censuses and extrapolations from censuses from sources of the Federal Statistical Office. Subsection A2 contains selected data from the micro census from sources of the Federal Statistical Office. Subsection B1 contains selected data from a publication by Heinz Günter Steinberg. Subsection B2 contains selected data from a publication by Gerhard Reichling. Subsection B2 contains selected data from a publication by Friedrich Edding and Eugen Lemberg.
