    Danzig, Memel, Kolberg and Maribor - Do They Have Any German Population?

    I'm very interested in the clearly German cities that now find themselves in other territories such as Danzig, Memel, Kolberg and Maribor (the former names I know). Maribor for instance, had a population of 80% Austrian Germans in the 1920s. I'd like to know how German are they now? I know that a lot of Volksdeutsch were expelled following World War II from these areas but I was wondering if there was still a noticeable German presence and influence on these cities. Have you ever visited any of them and if you have, which ones would you recommend to visit from an architectural and cultural point of view?

    Danzig has no german population at all, inhabited mostly by polish, from former polish territorries beyond Bug river(belarussia now), yet loads of german tourists visit it every year.

    Hallo Herr Geyer,

    Welcome to my world in this instance regarding this very subject. The lost territories of German Speaking Europa can be seen in pictures all over my walls and it continues to break my heart as most were lost in purely acts of spite and also of course acts of cruel genocide which western historians blatantly choose to Ignore still to this very present day. The BRD Government more shamefully so..

    From Eupen to Strassburg to Meran to the Zips and from Danzig to Königsberg and from Stettin to the Sudetenland etc etc..

    It Hurts..

    @Tom Toms DANZIG does indeed have a German speaking population numbering approx in Ethnicity at about 30,000.. This was the last I heard and I must go and get that checked out.. This I heard about 2 years ago..

    Görlitz-Ost and Stettin have had many Germans return to their natural abode since the Polish Government joined the EU. However, Naturally the Warsaw Government is absolutely so paranoid that too many Germans will move back and does not encourage it so has now laws that makes ownership official only to Polish citizens meaning German citizens can perhaps buy back their former ancestral homes but will not be allowed by law to actually own their ancestral property..

    Stettin is of course the biggest geographical joke of Stalins insisted post WW2 German/Polish new border which the USA and UK Governments mysteriously agreed to despite the knowledge of ownership of an atomic bomb that should have blasted Moscow into oblivion as it did Hiroshima.. General Patton of course removed as per agenda at this very time as he was considered an immediate threat to an agenda which was to allow the USSR to enslave an entire half of western and central Europa into the manacles of total bolshevik enslavement.. Central Germany was then to become the perverse entity called the DDR (GDR).. More perverse this part of Germany was then later considered by the western media to be the EAST !!!!! When it was and always has been and Still Is the CENTRAL part of Germania..

    Is the Truth So Hard Sometimes ??????

    ABSOLUTELY...

    The Western Masses Are SO Brainwashed these days Its truly Unbelievable..

    Wow...it is so...refreshing to come across another person who feels this way. The loss of these lands and the cruelty done to their native population has pained me ever since I learned about it back in high school. I cannot talk about it without becoming furious. I hate how it is covered up, I hate how very few seem to care or want them back...I just HATE it. I'd do anything to help them become German again. I wish there was something I could do. I look old maps of Germany or of the distribution of German speaking people in Europe, and it just sickens me how such a huge and widespread ethnic group was just decimated in favor of practically every neighboring ethnic group. It hurts me so bad to know my nation helped do so and still considers itself "heroic" for doing so.

    You post really touched me. I wish I could see your walls

    I can't believe what I'm reading. You're actually of the belief that "Maribor" is the German name for the settlement? I'm shocked!

    Maribor for instance, had a population of 80% Austrian Germans in the 1920s. I'd like to know how German are they now?
    My great-great-grandmother was from Marburg an der Drau, back then the German population was indeed well over 80%. Ethnic cleansing began between the wars, and saw its worst after WWII with partisans basically slaughtering the rest off and getting rid of most of their records.

    There are now virtually no German-speakers left, well under 1%. They have founded a cultural club which seeks to preserve their heritage, but essentially they have little future as their minority is too large to die, but too small to live.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I can only offer my apologies to you Sigurd. I came across Marburg whilst watching this video -

    Hitler in Marburg



    I am very familar with Danzig, Kolberg and Memel but it was this excellent video that prompted me to post this thread! Again, I'm sorry.

We also shouldn't forget several hundred smaller towns and villages also inhabited by Germans back then...

    When our Führeh come to Marburg there were not only Germans but also Slovenian on the street to great him...Actually in UnterSteiermak(today Slovenian Styria) the Slovenian population have both germanic and slavic genetic becuse the people in history on our region dont married on about what Ethnicaly are you but on Social status and all people know German and Slovenian(styrian dialect)language.

    Today in our city and also accros the countryside are living Germans but lot of them even dont know that there are or they dont wont to be proud on that (the fear from comunist era) but still what they wont to do our people we are still here and everday i think is there more proud Germans in our city, region and the country where we live now...

    Few historyfotos from Marburg a.d. Drau:










    And today Marburg a.d. Drau :

    Ödenburg in 1910 was 51% German, 44.3% Hungarian, today it is 92.8 % Hungarian, 3.5% German. (Hungarian name Sopron)


    In Preßburg, Germans were the dominant group until the 1860s, after WWI only 40% were Germans, and today Slovaks make up over 90%. (Slovak name Bratislava)





    Amazing how such cities so close to Austria can be so ethnically cleansed of Germans.
