Excellent book which details aspects of the Second World War. Especially interesting was the planning for refugees long before the end of the war. On the flip side it was chilling to read how the Nazis rationalized and categorized the collection and use of forced labor.

Having had relatives who were uprooted and made their way to Germany's western zone, this had more than just historical relevance to me. But, it was fascinating reading. So many people with so many agendas caught in a process that took years of sorting out. Very readable and even handed in its treatment of this subject.
