Millions of East-European minorities have been after WW2 forced to migrate from villages and towns to spaces of their nation's nation-state. Ethnic Germans and Italians of Yugoslavia had fled to Austria, Germany and Italy. For some of them the second step of their migration directed them to the environments of the New World. Originally peasants become blue collar workers and, with the ongoing hard work, middle class citizens of the USA, Canada and Australia. To some extend Italian minority migrants have been an exception.
About thirty years after their initial displacement, family member migrants, the second generation showed interest to visit sites of family's heritage behind the Iron Curtain. The first generation followed as tourists as well. Limited interest was shown to the visits to once own real estates and to some extend also to towns of own youth. Instead, major tourist attraction of the country have been focused on their visit.
This paper will analyze major literature on the behavior of displaced minorities as tourists in the country of their expulsion. Author's own tour guiding and heritage experience will be added.
