It seems like my memory got it wrong and it was Danish and not Finnish. The main point is that the non-German speaking minorites in Germany got special political rights under the postwar constitution.

The SSW which is the party for the Danish and Frisian minority in Schleswig-Holstein for example doesn't need to reach 5% to get into parliaments like other German parties.

That leads to a state where nobody really cares about those languages and we now have headlines like That's in contrast to Great Briton, Spain and France having problems with terror attacks of minorities in the second half of the 20st century.
