2017 Sep 3 - Archives of the Banat Swabians of Austria transferred to the Austrian State Archives

On .June 1, 2017, the Executive Committee of the Association of the Banat Swabians of Austria has decided unanimously to transfer the archives of the Banat Swabians of Austria to the Austrian State Archives.

On August 23, 2017 Chairman Dr. Hans Dama handed over to Councilor Dr. Robert Rill, the current head of the War Archive, the extensive material, sorted chronologically by years, consisting of 17 folders, as well as video and audio material spanning 110 years. In addition, there were press releases relating to the Club, its members and Banat personalities.

Some day historians or local historians will certainly show interest in the material and will find there a true treasure, relating not only to the Association's history, but also to historical events of the 20th century - E.g. the Kinderlandaktion (Viennese children sent to the Banat during the great depression) and others.

There remains the photo material (images or photographs) to be evaluated and handed over, also the numerous projects and events organized by the Association.  

But the first step towards the preservation of this valuable material was done... Nick Tullius
