    East European German admixture in Germany after WW2 - where they settled



    Eastern European Germans in Germany, November 1946:



    ^^^
    Some interesting info about their regional distribution:

    Germans from East Prussia settled mainly along the Baltic and North Sea coasts: "(...) The expellees from East Prussia moved westward along the Baltic Sea and piled up in large concentrations in both Mecklenburg and Schleswig-Holstein on the southern coast of that sea and near the Danish border. (...)"

    Eastern European Germans in West Germany in 1950:



    Baden-W├╝rttemberg only:

    Bavaria only:





    Schleswig only:




    There was a large gender imbalance in the expellee population, the men having been lost in the war:



    Regional distribution of East European Germans (where they settled):



    Breakdown of Eastern European Germans by their region of origin:



    ^^^
    But between 1950 and 1961 many Germans fled the GDR (Soviet/Communist Germany) and settled in West Germany - in total approximately 2,700,000 - including around 839,000 Germans who had previously fled Eastern Europe (and had initially settled in the GDR, later fleeing to West Germany):

    "Of the approximate 2.7 million Germans who fled the GDR prior to 1961, 839,000 were expellees [from Eastern Europe]."

    Interesting. Judging from the first map, there were very few expellees settled in the French occupation zone. This is also the area furthest away from the lost provinces, so it may be a coincidence.
