>Baltic countries and the region of Konigsberg, all of which had been annexed, they immigrated massively to Germany progressively with the retreat of the Wehrmacht. The number of those among them who could have augmented the number of Soviet Germans is thus very minor.

Let us therefore sum up the results of the censuses for the four nationalities mentioned:
 
By calculation, the numerical values of the Georgian and Armenian populations of 1959 are found again save 8% and those of the Germans save 4.5%, which would be a highly satisfactory rate of precision. In reality, the deficits thus discovered in these three cases are certainly not due to the imprecision of the method of calculation employed, but rather to the destructive effects of the war: loss in lives and separation of the sexes. As one could expect, for the reasons exposed above, these effects are distinctly less grave in the case of the Germans than in those of the two other populations.

The case of the Jewish population of the USSR within its borders of 1939 is different from that of the Georgians, the Armenians and the Germans in that one must consider that between 1942 and 1945 it natural growth was not only slowed down, but reduced to a very low level. Korherr indicates, for example that during the first trimester of 1943, in Germany itself, 22 births were registered as opposed to 1,113 deaths among the Jewish population still at liberty. So therefore if one leaves completely out of account the natural growth of the Jewish
