    THE REFUGEES, WHO GATHERED FROM ALL PARTS OF WEST GERMANY FOR THEIR ANNUAL WEEK-END OF COMMEMORATIVE SPEECHES, FLED OR WERE EXPELLED FROM SILESIA AT THE END OF WORLD WAR TWO WHEN THEIR HOME TERRITORIES CAME UNDER POLISH ADMINISTRATION.

    HERR WILLY BRANDT, MAYOR OF WEST BERLIN, TOLD THE MEETING: "THIS RALLY IS NOT AN EXPRESSION OF NATIONALISM.PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE COME HERE TO AFFIRM THEIR BONDS WITH THE HOMELAND OF THEIR FATHERS AND THE RIGHT OF ALL GERMANS TO DETERMINE THEIR OWN AFFAIRS."
    WEST GERMAN OFFICIALS ARE DUE TO LEAVE FOR WARSAW SOON FOR TALKS ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A TRADE MISSION IN POLAND LATER THIS YEAR.WEST GERMAN POLICY HAS UP TO NOW BEEN TO AVOID FULL DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH ANY COUNTRY RECOGNISING EAST GERMANY, EXCEPT THE SOVIET UNION.
