The tragic fate of German community was one of the tragedies, which were result of Hitler's policy of aggression and utter disregard for the human rights. Slovak Germans, similarly like other German communities living in Europe, became entangled in Nazi ideology and paid a high price for it. In many cases they became the victims of events, which were beyond their power to control them. When war ended, they were stigmatized as the enemies of Czechoslovakia and majority of them ousted from their homesteads to unknown fate. A continuity of life of community, which for centuries contributed to economic, cultural and social development of Slovakia, was broken. Today both sides - Slovaks as well as Germans are working together on revitalizing their common heritage.(http://www.saske.sk/cas/)
