Atrocities Against The Danube Swabian in Yugoslavia - Starting in 1944

A map visualizing the genocide ("the cleansing" 1944-1948) of the ethnic German minority (Danube Swabians) in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia's northern regions.  The last concentration camps were closed in 1948, on the anniversary of the arrival of the first German settlers in 1748.
