Diaspora, thy name is legion

Today's random walk through Wikipedia led me to another bunch of Koreans cast adrift from history and their homeland by the Japanese and Russians; the post-WWII ethnic cleansing of Germans from a lot of countries in Eastern Europe, and, oddly enough, the Netherlands; the children left behind by soldiers of various nations after World War II; and the unhappy life of one of ABBA's singers. (Somewhat less horrible: the career of one of rock's great guitar players, the war child of a Canadian soldier in England.)
