Remembering Our Danube Swabian Ancestors
     
 

NEW BOOK

"Unter Anderen"
"Amongst Others"

According to a recent newspaper article, there are currently 132,000 Danube Swabians living in Hungary (38,000 of whom claim German as their mother tongue), 15,000 in the Banat, 4000 in Serbia, and 3000 in Croatia.

These numbers are quoted in conjunction with a permanent exhibition at the Donauschwäbisches Zentralmuseum (Central Danube-Swabian Museum) in Ulm, Germany. In the exhibition, as well as in the simultaneously published book, Serbian top photographer Dragoljub Zamurovic presents 60 portraits, 15 from each of the four settlement areas, people of almost all age groups, celebrities, and ordinary people.

Incidentally, the book of 184 pages contains about 100 color photographs, 5 maps and the text is in both German and English. Its title is "Unter Anderen" (Amongst others) ISBN 978-3-86281-099-4 and costs 19.80 Euros at http://www.amazon.de/
