Although expellees (in German Heimatvertriebene) and their descendants were active in West German politics, the prevailing political climate within West Germany was that of atonement for Nazi actions.
Some German expellees, on the other hand, criticise that the official Polish outlook on the War and post War events is mostly based on a collectivist view (of mixed communist and nationalist ideas), that does not look at the individual suffering on both sides, but emphazises the ethnic background of each individual.

Nico, my title proposal, Treatment of ethnic Germans in the context of WWII is exactly about what you want, only more neutral and IMO more precise: it will cover not only organized, but still harsh treatment of Germans, and it exclude, say, Middle Ages, while yours does not.
In this case I would propose to name your text something like Organised persecution of alleged Nazi collaborators, to match the intro, and to refer it from the current article (provided it is named "Treatment of...") with a summary, and with dupicates removed.

In Norway the term Lebensborn is most commonly used to describe children of Norwegian mothers and German fathers, after the name of the Nazi human breeding programme intended to breed "racially pure" members of the "Aryan race" (see the article Lebensborn for more details).
This appears to be a misnomer, as no documented Lebensborn breeding home existed in Norway, but around the country, 15 nursery centers called Lebensborn homes took care of the babies and their Norwegian unmarried mothers.
The new government and psychiatrists encouraged this type of behaviour and assured the people that they should not compare the treatment of these children to the German treatment of the Jews, since there had to be something "wrong with people that wanted to be in a family with, and of German soldiers".

The Germans knew Jews were managing to escape to neighbouring villages, so they offered a reward of two pounds of sugar to any Pole who would point out a Jew they knew had sneaked out.
Some co-operated with the Germans for reasons of personal advantage or ambition; others struggled for rational answers to irrational problems and in some cases forfeited their own lives rather than become accomplices to murder.
The ghettos that were organised at that time were in most cases closed, and officially were only for those people who had been selected for work.

In Austria and Liechtenstein, both of which are primarily German-speaking countries, the situation is less extreme, but nevertheless, there are very few who would call Swiss, Austrians, or Lichtensteiners Volksdeutsche, if only because it sounds like pan-German nationalism and also because it may offend or belittle them.

 Revolve : Australian Classical Music : CD Warehouse - Was Wagner Jewish? By Derek Strahan
The attacks were a preparation on Wagner's part, to carve out a politically correct role for himself as a German nationalist, writing music to this agenda, as distinct from (what he described as being) the synthetic, non-nationalist kind of music favoured by Jewish composers.
I personally consider their contribution to 20th century music to have been as significant as any other development in the evolution of music and it is again ironic that many of the techniques they used for this new form of music theatre called cinema, were based on Wagnerian theory and practise.
It is quite likely that this remark reflects Wagner's disenchantment with the German public, which, by then, he had come to feel had given him insufficient support and backing in the creation of the Bayreuth Festival.
