Not only the the Czechs feel need for retribution

German civilians are forced to walk past bodies of 30 Jewish women starved to death by German SS troops

In 1945 at Volary, Czechoslovakia the US Army forced these Sudeten German civilians to walk past the bodies of 30 Jewish women who had died on a death march across Czechoslovakia. This shows that it was not only Czechs who thought there should be some retribution against Sudeten Germans for what happened in the War.
