Subject: [DVHH] Das Donautal magazine, JAREK anniversary, Website advice
Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2007 19:31:25 -0400
I'm trying to find out how to get a subscription to the magazine, Das Donautal. I'd appreciate it if anyone could provide that information.
The 220th celebration of the founding of Jarek will be held on May 11th/12th. I'll try and get further details on the place,perhaps Beuren(?).
A former Jareker, Inge Morgenthaler, sent me the following and has also volunteered photos, do we (dvhh) have someplace that they can be posted?
I would also like to know how people have gone about starting the various village websites linked to dvhh with the intention of possibly starting one for Jarek if one doesn't already exist.
Thanks for any help/information,
"... on May 11th. and 12th. ,we will celebrate the 22o anniversary of the village Jarek. I am going to show some photos and give a talk on the development of the village from 1887 till today. The beautiful old houses are crumbling and most of them will be torn down during the next 10 years. Jarek was said be the most beautiful village in then Batschka and I believe it.
My heart bleeds, when I see that nothing will be left to show that this part of Eastern Europe was once founded by German settlers. So I decided to go there again in September to take more pictures. I also want to preserve the customs and I have started to write a series of texts explaining the customs in combination with recipes used in certain situations.
I am also the editor of the Heimatbrief Jarek in the" Donautal Magazin" which is a magazine read by Donauschwaben. I can publish my texts there...."
