A region of Middle Europe now located along the border between Czech Republic and Poland. Greeny landscape with small hills and little towns. Quintessentially European.

This region used to be part of Bohemia, and was largely German-speaking. This was just fine, and things remained so for centuries. But in the mid-30's, the rise of the Nazi regime led to growing pangermanism among german-speaking people all over Europe. The Sudetes question became one of Europe's itching point, and was the main subject of the Munich Pact - which led to the annexion of the region by Germany.

In 1945, the lost districts were recovered by Czechoslovakia and most of the German population was expelled.
