Henry Fischer
Author, Translator & Content Contributor


Henry was born in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, son of Swabian immigrants from Hungary.   Henry has been a DVHH contributor for sometime now and he brings with him an unmistakable love for what he is doing for the Danube Swabian.  Being fluent in English and German, he has translated and contributed numerous historical articles for us to benefit and learn from.  We are fortunate to have Henry as a Resource Contributor.

Henry served on the former DVHH Administration Team, and currently serves on the DVHH Editorial Committee, in addition to his position as the Swabian Turkey Regional Coordinator, where he shares his knowledge and expertise, but he provides us with much more.

Henry has been very generous with his time and contributions to the DVHH project, which generations to come will enjoy and appreciate.  Thank you Henry!
