Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Federal Expellee Law (Bundesvertriebenengesetz, BVFG) is a German federal law of May 19, 1953 which regulates the rights of German refugees from Central and Eastern Europe and defines - in 6 - who is considered expellees and therefore entitled to get German citizenship, if they wish so. The persons entitled to become Germans also include (former) foreign citizens of states of the Eastern Bloc, who themselves - or whose ancestors - were persecuted or discriminated between 1945 and 1990 for their German ethnicity by their respective governments. The argument goes that the Federal Republic of Germany had/has to administer to the needs of these foreigners, because their respective governments in charge of guaranteeing their equal treatment as citizens, severely neglected or contravened that obligation.show more
