    Greetings!

    Since I'm new here, I'd like to introduce myself: I've been really keen on Norse mythology, history and language since long time and it looks like this forum is exactly for such people like me
    I'm really glad to find this site where I can read about interesting topics concerning my favourite ones

    Thank you very much!!!

    Hello and welcome to Skadi Wolfia.
    Since we're a forum about Germanics I have to ask again about something confusing about your profile:
    what is your Germanic ancestry and how much?
    Are you a Sudeten German from the Czech Republic or predominantly Slavic?
    Since you have Norse interest does it mean you identify more as Germanic than Slavic or is it viceversa?

    Welcome here, Wolfia.

    Could you tell us a little bit about the German minority in Budweis? Here what I found on Wikipedia:

    The city was a German-speaking enclave until 1890. During the industrialization of the city, Czechs became the ethnic majority. Until the ethnic cleansing of Germans of 1945 resulting from World War II, the city had a significant German minority (about 15.5 % in 1930).
    It doesn't say however about the present situation. Are there many German people left there?

    Hi Jael, Siebenbürgerin, Méldmir and everyone,

    I live in the Czech Republic, Budweis but my ancestors were from Sudetenland (they were transferred to Germany after the WWII).
    I identify myself more as Germanic although my parents are both Czechs. (maybe it's because I have many friends in Austria, Germany and northern countries generally). I often travel to Austria and would like to study there...
    As for Budweis, it was a predominately german speaking city in the past (f.e. there used to live Germans in our flat). Currently however, there aren't many left (they all were transferred) but in our region, very close to Austria and Germany, the German language is still very important to know...

    Welcome! It is very interesting to read posts from people like yourself. I have really had my eyes opened about what is German and who considers themselves German by the Skadi community. I hope you will stay and contribute your point of view!

    Then they were most likely Germans. The Germans in the Sudetenland were relocated after the war, because Sudetenland was no longer belonging to Germany. And if your parents descend from Sudeten Germans, they can't be "Czechs". A Czech descends from Slavs, not Germans.

    I identify myself more as Germanic
    Then what's with the "Slavic" in your profile? You'll only give people the wrong idea.

    Welcome! this photo from the gallery of Sudeten Germans in the 1930's following the annexation is one of my favorites in the gallery. You can really get a sense of the emotion of the times. It's very sad what happened in the end, though.


    Budvar is also famous in my mind for holding out as a 'traditional' european brewery resisting global-american business and even having to fight for its name (budweiser) when an american company used it. Sadly I understand it may be privatised now, but at least it sill makes better drinks than the americans

    By the way, Wolfia, we've many threads about the Sudeten Germans. You can find them in the 'Germanic Enclaves' forum. Here the link:
    http://forums.skadi.net/forumdisplay.php?f=836

    Maybe you can help us enrich our knowledge about your region.
