Sudeten Germans make their way to the railway station in Liberec, in former Czechoslovakia, to be transferred to Germany, July 1946. After the end of the war, 12-14 million ethnic Germans were forcibly expelled from other European countries back to Germany, in one of the larger forced displacements in history. Perhaps 500,000 to 2 million died during the expulsion. Source: http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2011/10/world-war-ii-after-the-war/100180/#img13
