(Persecution of German Woodcutters in Modra in Years 1945 – 1950)
Abstract: The paper is devoted to the development of a community of German woodcutters (called “mountain people” or “Huncokars”) living in forests near the town of Modra in the years 1945 – 1950, in locality called Piesok. During this period, the people’s democratic regime in the restored Czechoslovakia carried out extensive persecution of Germans, including their expulsion. The paper deals with the preparation, implementation and consequences of anti-German measures in relation to the mountain people of Modra, their specifics and differences from the measures against other German inhabitants of the region.
