Final Solution of the Czech Question
The Final Solution of the Czech Question (German: Endlösung der tschechischen Frage) was the Nazi Germany plan for a complete Germanisation of the area of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, specifically by displacing the Czech population into Siberia or the area of Volhynia (now part of Ukraine). The plan was developing in concert with the race and national policy of Nazi Germany and corresponded with the general plan of the liquidation and exile of the Slavic ethnics, called Generalplan Ost. Preparations for the Final Solution of the Czech Question had begun shortly after the German occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1939; the realisation, however, was delayed due to the need for Czech labour to supply the German army. By the end of World War II, almost a hundred Czech municipalities with roughly 50,000 inhabitants had been displaced.
