Clubs, Associations, Recreation & Sports Affiliations

The Germans in Beschka were very happy to join clubs.  On the one hand their established association served to care for the German customs, especially the German songs and literature.  On the other hand the associations served as the fulfillment of the community’s problems, such as the Fireman’s Association.

Eine Reise durch das Banat mit dem Bayrischen Rundfunk. Ein sehr schöner Beitrag der zum Erinnern aber auch zum Kennenlernen des Banats geeignet ist.
(A journey through the Banat with the Bavarian Radio. A very nice contribution is to remember but also suitable for getting to know the Banat.)
