Silesia also housed one of the two main wartime centers where medical experiments were conducted on kidnapped Polish children by Nazis.The Potsdam Conference of 1945 concluded that the Oder-Neisse line would be the official border between Germany and Poland. Millions of Germans in Silesia, either fled or were expelled, and were replaced later by Polish population settled from other regions.

Many Silesian residents not only resented the Germans for their invasion in 1939 and brutality in occupation, but now also the newly formed Polish communist government for their population shifting and interference in agricultural, as well as industrial, affairs."(wiki).
