     The previous chapters describe the gruesome atrocities committed against the ethnic Germans by the Yugoslav Communist regime, resulting in the genocide of this significant part of the Yugoslav population.

     After their flight and expulsion, the survivors of the Danube Swabian genocide organized "home town societies" in their new domiciles, particularly in Germany, Austria and overseas countries. This enabled them to establish reliable documentations of the tragic events and casualties, including names, times and places of their deaths. Over 60,000 names are recorded. This represents about 70% of the 86,000 calculated victims. The following tables detail the numbers and localities of their demise between 1944 and 1948.
