Un "nationalisme" des réfugiés en République fédérale d'Allemagne ? : l'exemple de l'Association provinciale de Silésie et de l'Association provinciale des Hauts-Silésiens

Abstract : Since their creation in 1950 by Silesians expelled from the Heimat in 1945, the Provincial Association of Silesia (LS) and the Provincial Association of the Upper Silesians (LdO) have developed political, cultural activities. Accused to be nationalist and excluded by Germany where the notion of nation is taboo, they have tried to prepare the retur of Silesians to their Heimat and have worked for a better integration of their members in the West German society. This study deals with the actions and discourses of the two associations on federal and local level. The gap is growing between leaders and members, who have resigned. Their major demand, recovery of Silesia, may be assimilated to demands of the extremists, but the demand of the Silesian refugees is less caused by the expression of ideology than the one of a psychological lack : we could then call it an "emotional nationalism".
