A few words from the Village Coordinator:

My grandparents actually came from Feketic (Feketitsch) and the first homeland book I received was about Feketitsch.  But later the same family who gave me a copy of the book about Feketitsch also sent me a book about Beschka.  The family name is mentioned in the back of the book but otherwise no mention.  What I did find though was a wealth of information in the book not just about Beschka and Syrmia but also about the Donauschwaben people in general, their history, their culture, and their language.
