Mr Connor looks at the background to these people's plight (the Nazi settlement schemes), the size of the problem, relations between refugees and local people, the political impact of the resettlement, the nature of the refugees' integration after 1950 (in economic, social and political terms), the fear that the refugees' poverty would tum them to radical politics (a particularly interesting chapter) and finally, a look at the situation in the Soviet zone and East Germany where the refugees had a far harder time.
