Agadici, Romania (Official)

Caras-Severin County - Western Romania

 

Agadici is administered by the town Oraviţa / Orawitz

The history of Agadici can be traced back to at least the 1600s, when records note a population of 800 souls. Today, there are fewer than 200 people living in Agadici. 

 

Agadici is a word derived from the Turkish language; Aga meaning 'colonel' and dici meaning 'daughter of.' Therefore, Agadici means, daughter of the colonel. The town was supposedly named after a colonel's daughter when the Ottoman Empire was in occupation of the land that is now the Banat.

 

Agadici was among 190 villages affected by the deportation to the Bărăgan Steppe in 1951.

MAP DESCRIPTION: The excellent coloured engraving shows the city of Palanka in Hungaria. Banatska Palanka is a village in Serbia. It is situated in the Bela Crkva municipality, South Banat District, Vojvodina province. On the back you can find a latin description.
This wonderful view was published in the Janssonius town books in 1650. The town books contain views of cities and towns from all over the world and were published at a time when Joannes and Cornelis Blaeu were still planning their "cities of the world". But contrary to what the Blaeus had produced and were to produce, Janssonius's work was not original throughout. Janssonius had acquired the plates of the Civitates orbis terrarum from Abraham Hogenberg. The bulk was incorporated into the townbooks. For many plates of the cities of the Netherland, Janssonius ordered copper plates, newly engraved after the orininals by Blaeu. Further artists are only partly known.

Between 1770 - 1771 the old village was subject to colonization by German General Johann Altringen, a period in which the entire Banat is subject to colonization by Germans. General Altringen, acting governor of the Banat, ordered the establishment of several villages for German settlers in this area. These Charlottenburg (named after his wife) and Altringen. To make room for German settlers, the native population was relocated to other villages. Altringen Romanians continued to use the name or Recheşel Recăşel until the interwar period.

The Neumannsche settlement resulted in 1770 establishing the following villages: Kleinjetscha, Heufeld, Mastort, Marienfeld, Albrechtsflor und 1771 zur Besiedlung des Berksowatals: Buchberg, Neuhof, Altringen, Charlottenburg, Königshof, Blumenthal and the villages of the Arader Land Segenthau, Wiesenhaid, Kreuzstätten and the French villages Sankt-Hubert, Seultour und Charleville. (Source: Quellennachweis: Donauschwäbische Geschichte. Das Jahrhundert der Ansiedlung 1689-1805 von Oskar Feldtänzer) [Note: Von Neumann, official with the Transylvanian Salt Depot in Lippa].

 

In 1910 the Germans accounted for 88% of the population of Altringen. After the Second World War their number decreases rapidly. By 1992 the Germans had migrated completely. Romanian people are the majority today, most of whom emigrated from other parts of Romania.

 

Today the village is predominantly a holiday village in the city. Recently opened hostel arranged here and a Swabian style.

Banatsko Veliko Selo, Yugoslavia (Official) "name means "the big village in Banat"  A village in the Kikinda municipality, in the North Banat District of the Republic of Serbia. It is situated in the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina.

 

Following Ottoman rule, there were no proper settlements in the present location of the village. Following an order by the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria on November 25, 1763, the right to settle this area was given exclusively to Roman Catholics. In 1770 and 1771, this area was settled by French settlers from the Lorraine region and by southwestern German settlers, the southwestern German settlers later becoming known as the Banat Swabians. They founded three villages—Sankt Hubert, Charleville and Seultour. In the course of the late 18th century, these settlements changed hands several times. Over time, the French settlers were assimilated into the German population. After World War II, the Germans fled to Germany and Serb families from Bosnia came to the settlements. One larger village named Veliko Selo was formed out of the three existing German villages. In 1948, its name was changed to Banatsko Veliko Selo. The names of the former German villages are today used as names for districts within the larger village.

    German: Großwardein, Hungarian: Nagyvárad] is the capital city in the Bihor County in Romania (North of Arad County) and not Timis County, therefore either the church was moved from county to county or there was/is two places called Brusturi.

    • Ernsthausen was founded in 1822 by Danube Swabians settlers and named after an Austrian army officer Field Marshal, Lieutenant Ernest Kiss de Elemer. The settlers were exclusively Roman Catholic in faith, and in 1844 they built a large schoolhouse which was used until 1944. During the 19th and early 20th century Danube Swabians played an important role in developing the economy. Dr. Sepp Janko, chairman of the Schwäbisch-Deutschen Kulturbundes (Danube Swabian German Cultural Association) was born here in 1905. On 8 December 1888 the newly built Gothic style Roman Catholic church was opened (it was demolished in 1945).

    • The 1930 census showed a population of 2421 people. After 1945 all the Danube Swabians were deported and all evidence their existence was systematically destroyed or obscured by the Communist authorities.

    •      The town was founded in 1787. By 1921 its population included 4,450 Germans, which comprised 97.7 percent of the total population of the time. It was also the location of a concentration camp for local civilians of German origin held by Partisans after World War II.  After World War II, the town was colonized by Serbs who came from Bosnia, Krajina, Lika, and Dalmatia as well as Macedonians who came from Macedonia.

           On May 11, 1999 during the NATO Bombing Campaign of the Kosovo War, the town was targeted by NATO forces in a mission to destroy an apparent tactical reporting post. There were also unsubstantiated claims of an F-16 being shot down on the outskirts of Kačarevo in the early morning hours of May 8, 1999 by a surface-to-air missile, while speculation also suggests that the pilot ejected safely as there was an intensive search by Yugoslav military during the night and during the next morning.
           The number of reported inhabitants of the town in 2002 was 7,624, in approximately 2,529 households. The majority of inhabitants are ethnic Serbs (5,042 or 66.13%), while Macedonians form 19.24% of the population or 1,467 people. Unfortunately, about 8 percent of the towns' population are either refugees or internally displaced persons, mostly resulting from recent wars in Kosovo and Bosnia.

    Verlorene Heimat Georgshausen” Author: Dr. Josef Wüst (1925-2003), commissioned by the village association in 1989 and published in Austria in 1991 by former villagers: Helmut Birg, Hans Loch, Konrad Löchel and Josef Wüst.   

    The English edition of “Verlorene Heimat Georgshausen” has been published and is ready for purchase. English Title “Lost Homeland Georgshausen.”- Translated by Henry Fischer.
    Editors: Ray Borschowa and Barbara Hebenstreit. Published by Ray Borschowa.
    Since Georgshausen was a daughter community of Zichydorf, the descendents of either village should find the book interesting, or anyone who wants to read about community life in a small village in the Banat.  The author covers holiday celebrations, customs and community life quite well. 

     

    Ray Borschowa comments:  Henry Fischer has a great knowledge of the Danube Swabian culture and dialect, because of that he did a wonderful translation, without him this work would not have been accomplished.  He has written several books on the Danube Swabians.  Since the original book used local words, it was unlike translating a typical German book, but fortunately, we were able to contact a number of the former villagers who helped answer the numerous questions that arose during the translation.  In addition, the author’s daughter, Barbara Hebenstreit, proof read the entire book.

     

    Dr. Wüst wrote the book in a style that Germans refer to as: “to the heart going,” its like he is sitting there telling the story.  Primary topics covered: 

    • A short history of the Banat.

    • The consequences of the First World War.

    • The founding of Georgshausen in 1849 and its development, such as the railroad, artesian wells, enlarging the village, church life, politics and industry.  Also its bond with Zichydorf.

    • WWII and shortly after.  About 55 pages are devoted to this.  It includes many personal stories, and the tragedies that WWII brought to the village.

    • Life in the village and the customs; about 50 pages.  The author did a very good job with this topic.  In the chapter “This is the Way it was Back Home” he starts with the beginning of the year and discusses all of the major events and holidays throughout the year.  He also includes the customs for baptisms, weddings and funerals. 

    • The Birg family of Georgshausen, formerly from Karlsdorf.  The Birgs were one of the most well known families throughout the Banat.  They were industrialists and large farmers.  The life and legends about this family are covered in the book.

    • Housing, eating and drinking.

    • Agriculture, industry, shopkeepers and trades.

    • Social organizations and the activities and games for the children.

    • “An Excursion to the Kirchweih in Gross Gaj.”  This is a humorous story that took place when the automobile was still a novelty in the Banat.  A group of young men commandeered a traveling salesman’s automobile and drove it to the Kirchweih celebration in the neighboring village of Gross Gaj.  The problem was they did not know anything about cars, nor was the road suited for auto travel!  It turned out to be a sensation in Gross Gaj.

    • The names of the villagers who were living in the village at Easter of 1941 and where the former villagers were living in 1991.

    • A table of words from the local dialect.

    • A 1941 village map showing where each family lived.

    The English edition has additional pages and footnotes added to describe some things in more detail.  It also has about 30 more pictures than the German edition.  Total number of pictures in the book is a little over 150.  It’s a hard cover book.  Counting the introductory section and a few blank pages, the book is 294 pages. 

    The price is $46 (USD or CAD), plus shipping. 
    Shipping rates: In the US, the book can be shipped by media mail for $3. 

    Sending one book to Canada is $21.20, there is no media mail rate for Canada.  However, I may be able to mail it from within Canada for much less.  I am checking into this option.  Multiple books can be sent to Canada much cheaper in flat rate postal boxes.  There are two flat rate boxes, one will hold three books and costs $24 for postage ($8 per book), there is a bigger box that will hold five books and costs $30 for postage ($6 per book).  For the folks in the Regina area, I will be sending them in bulk to Glenn Schwartz and you can pick up a copy at his house. 

    The postage for sending one book to Germany, Austria, Serbia or Hungary is $25.15 (16 EUR) , sending three in a flat rate box to those countries is $39 (24.72 EUR).  Total cost to Europe for one book is $71.15 (45.15 EUR).

    South Banat District Vojvodina - NE District of Serbia

    • Nagy Gaj was belonging to the Bishop of Nagybecserek (Zrenjanin) where the Hungarian researcher László Rudolf found the Birth-Marriage-Death records: 1918-1926 (duplicate) for Veliki Gaj (Nagy Gáj/Gross Gaj). And it is for sure that it is not about the original church registers but about a copy on them which, theoretically, after 1825, must be forwarded each year to the superiors.

    • In "Adalekok a Zrenjanini-Nagy Becskereki Egyhazmegye tortenetehez" [by ERÖS Lajos, 1993]. Translation: [Contribution to the history of Zrenjanin-Nagy Becskerek Churches]. The author gives the exact location [church, civil registration/mayoralty, archives] for the church registers for each village/parish/church in Serbian Banat. Unfortunately, for Nagygay/Maleniczfalva ERÖS Lajos is positive: the church registers were kept separately starting 1832 but "mind megsemmisultek" [translation: everything was lost].

    • Located in the Plandište municipality, about 1 km SE of the Romanian border, 30 km E of Pantschowa, about 70 km NE of Belgrade.

    • The village was first mentioned in 1355 under name Gaj. In the 17th century, the name of the village was changed to Veliki Gaj. During the Ottoman rule (16th-17th century), the village was mostly populated by ethnic Serbs.

    • In 1848, Josif Malenica, landowner of Veliki Gaj led the Germans to work on the property and founded a new settlement next to Veliki Gaj, thus named it Malenicafalva, which merged with Veliki Gaj in 1888; both settlements counted 2569 residents.

    • In 1850-1854, thanks to landowners help, the church was built, and named for his deceased son, St  Peter. In this church is the tomb of landowner Malenica, which are all buried (first they were buried in the old church, so they were moved to a new tomb in the church, where they are today).

    • Ordered by landowner Malenica, the village was laid out with straight streets and the houses were built next to the street. Before that they all were inside the house, the yard, to protect from peeping into the house, theft or breaking into homes.  According to the claims of Veliki Gaj was then notorious settlement due to theft and robbery. There were often fights among Serbs, Germans, Hungarians and other nationalities. 

    • The village was founded/colonized with Germans settlers coming from Banat in 1816.

    • Filial parish of Deutsch-Stamora [between 1816-1832].

    • The parish was raised in 1832 [and the church registers were kept separately starting 1832].  The RC church, SS Nomen B.M.V., was raised in 1854-'55 and was blessed in 1856.

    • Maleniczfalva and Nagy Gaj merged in 1889 [or 1885?] and the RC parish was moved from Malenitzfalva to Nagy Gaj.

    • Since 1716, the village was part of the Habsburg Monarchy, which encouraged the settlement of German-speaking Donauschwaben (Danube Swabians) and others. In 1910, the population of the village numbered 2,930 inhabitants, including 1,456 Serbs, 743 Hungarians, and 620 Germans. After the First World War, the village became part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes (renamed to Yugoslavia in 1929). During the Second World War (1941–1944), the village was under Axis occupation, and was part of the autonomous Banat region within German-occupied Serbia.

    • After the war, the village was part of the new socialist Yugoslavia, within the Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina and Socialist Republic of Serbia. The German and Hungarian population was been expelled in 1944/45. In 1991, the village had 897 inhabitants, including 883 Serbs, and 14 ethnic Hungarians.

    • Since 1992, the village was part of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, that in 2003 was transformed into the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro. Since the dissolution of this state in June 2006, the village became part of an independent Serbia.

    • Legend has it that the weary Hercules stopped in the valley to bathe and rest. During the 165 years of Roman domination of Dacia, the Herculaneum Spa was known all over the Empire. Unearthed stone carvings show that visiting Roman aristocrats turned the town into a Roman leisure center. Six statues of Hercules from the time have been discovered. A bronze replica of one of them, molded in 1874, stands as a landmark in the town center.

    • In modern times, the spa town has been visited for its natural healing properties: hot springs with sulfur, chlorine, sodium, calcium, magnesium and other minerals, as well as negatively ionized air. Before World War II, when the first modern hotel was built (i.e. H Cerna, 1930) it remained a popular destination with Western Europeans, who lent the town a refined elegance. During the Communist rule, mass tourism facilities were built, such as the 8-12 levels tall concrete hotels Roman, Hercules A, Hercules B, Afrodita, Minerva, Diana, UGSR, etc. which dominate the skyline. It was visited by all publics, but especially popular with employees and retirees, who would spend their state-allotted vacation vouchers there, hoping to improve their health. Today, they share the town with a younger crowd, attracted by its beautiful mountain setting. An incredible array of new private-owned pensions and hotels appeared after 1989, along the Cerna/Tiena river banks, spread from the beautiful romantic train station to the end of the hydroelectrical dam. Although very beautiful also, some of the Austro-Hungarian era buildings are derelict for the time being, including many of the baths, because of post-communism property related issues.

    •      Ethnic Germans settled in the settlement starting in 1803, and in the same year some Slavic Krašovani settlers from eastern Banat settled here as well. In 1921, name of the settlement was Karlovo Selo, and in 1926, it was officially named Banatski Karlovac. In the same year, the reading room was founded and monument dedicated to Serbs killed in 1848 revolution was built.

           Before the end of World War II, most of the inhabitants of this town were ethnic Germans. After the war, their property was confiscated by the state and Germans were expelled or killed in concentration camps run by Yugoslav communist authorities. A German Lutheran church was razed off soon after the expulsion of Germans.

           After the war, 615 (mostly Serb) families with 3,775 family members settled in the town. They originated from Central Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro, mostly from area around Užice and Čačak. Some settlers were not satisfied with life conditions in the town, so about 80 families returned to their place of origin. In 1949, town was named Banatsko Rankovićevo, and this name was in use until 1956, when old name Banatski Karlovac was returned.

    Caras-Severin County - Western Romania

    The Tirol is located in the Romanian Banat, 80 km southeast of the capital city of Banat Timişoara in the county of Caras-Severin. Other cities near the small town Bokschan (Bocsa) and the industrial city of Resita (Resita) are. The village lies on a low altitude of 176 m, where the mild climate favors the fruit and wine.

    The freedom struggle of the Austrian Tyrolean peasants in 1809 was under Andreas Hofer against Napoleon and the Bavarians trigger the establishment of the Tyrol village in the Banat Mountains. After the defeat of the insurgents and the Tyrolean Schoenbrunn peace agreement took many Tyrolean escape. The leaders of the uprising were meanwhile feverishly pursued.

    On the side of Andreas Hofer at that time was his aide Joseph Speckbacher. This was it possible under mysterious circumstances to come to Vienna. In May 1810 he was commissioned by the emperor, the Tyrolean refugees to lead to the Banat and to found a colony. On 16 September 1812, when the colony was already in Tyrol 30 houses, the Emperor issued a certificate that the village's name "Königsgnad" received. As part of the Tyrol Magyarization was renamed in 1888 in Királykegye. After it was divided in 1927, the Banat, the new town has been called since that time Tyrol.

    Today's sign bears both the original name Königsgnad and Tyrol.
