I am curious as to what happened, sometime in-between '44 and '45, my family relocated (from Galicia) to German-occupied Poland. When the Russians came, they shot my grandfather's brother in the foot: they tried killing my other family members as-well.
Why did my family relocate and why did the Russians try to kill them? Volksdeutsche perhaps?
Golden is right. Were they just resistant to the Soviets, perhaps refusing to go along with the Russians' demands; were they hostile in other ways? It was a very brutal time.
We would need a lot more information, however as I say, a very difficult time.
