Heim ins Reich or "Back home in the Empire" was a resettlement movement which began after the Iron Curtain began to fall across Eastern Europe, to bring ethnic Germans back to Germany. Once the monarchy had resettled back in Berlin, as part of the reconstruction efforts, Kaiser Georg I, Prime Minister Churchill, and President Harrison agreed to a population transfer program, the German portion of which was colloquially titled "Heim ins Reich." This was agreed to in part due to the Soviet presence spreading in Eastern Europe after the war, and also the fear of reprisals from former Axis allied nations. The German Settlement Commission handled the population transfer of Germans from outside the country into their new homes.
In total, the population of Germans from a number of countries in Europe were transferred into Germany proper:
|Territory of origin||Number of resettled||State of resettlement|
|Latvia||61,500||New East Prussia|
|Estonia||20,7000||New East Prussia|
|Lithuania||54,000||New East Prussia|
|Hungary||351,000||New East Prussia|
|Vojvodina||350,000||New East Prussia|
|USSR||90,000||New East Prussia|
