To all Danube Swabians, their descendants, and the readers of the messages
on this List:
Have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year 2018!
My latest book in the Danube-Swabian dialect of Alexanderhausen was
published recently in Temeswar/Timişoara. Being sponsored by the local
Democratic Forum of the Germans, it is not sold commercially. For anybody
who might be interested, the details are published at
Most of the little stories gathered in the book have been previously
published in one or both of the newspapers Banater Post (München/Munich) and
Banater Zeitung (Bucureşti/Bukcharest).
On the website specified above you can read some of the stories in their
original dialect, as well as some translations into English. Unfortunately,
the specific nuances or character is lost in translation.
