Dear list members and fellow Donauschwaben,
It is with great pleasure that I announce a new section of the DVHH.org
Danube Swabians in Bulgaria http://www.dvhh.org/bulgaria/
Over the past few years, there have been a couple of inquiries to the
Mail List about the secondary migration of Danube Swabians to Bulgaria,
however, there was hardly a response. There is very little
documentation about this migration, in fact, most history books written
about the Danube Swabians don't mention this part of our history,
perhaps because it involved relatively small numbers and their
settlements only lasted about 40-50 years (many were deported to Germany
during WWII as part of the "Heim ins Reich" agreement with Bulgaria).
Yet, it is an important part of our history and should be acknowledged.
Many thanks to Bulgaria coordinator Rose Vetter for initiating this
section, for translations, and for all her efforts.
Hopefully we can arouse more interest and add more information in the
