    Saxons in the Republic of Macedonia

    Saxons in the Republic of Macedonia

    Saxons (in Macedonian Sasi) have settled in the north-east parts of Macedonia in 13 Cent., in the area around present towns of Kriva Palanka, Kratovo, Kočani and Štip. They came as a professional miners and founded many settlements. The Saxons in Macedonia were incorporated into the Macedonian nation, during the last 600 years and still many people from north east of Macedonia posses nordic German anthropological characteristics. Macedonians from north eastern Macedonia speak the Macedonian language, but remained very few specific german words in their dialect like tas (german e. Tasse), tute (german e. Tüte), lamba (german e. Lampe), german-ec (instead of slavic word nemec) and some german words that might be adopted later on like šnajder, štof, šuster etc. with same pronouncing and meaning like in the German language. The Saxons left behind them toponyms in this part of Macedonia with german etymology like:

    1. Village German (Rankovce and Kriva Palanka Municipality);
    2. Village and Mine Complex Sasa (Saxons);
    3. Village Luke originates from German word Luke (Kriva Palanka Municipality);
    4. Village Šlegovo (Schlegovo) originates from German word Schlagen (Kratovo Municipality);
    5. Village Stalkovica (Stahlkovica) originates from German word Stahl (Municipality Kratovo) ;
    6. Mountain Osogovo (which belongs to Municipalities of Kriva Palanka and Kočani, as well as Bulgaria);according to the most famous legend, the name of Mountain Osogovo originates from the old German words "osso" (god) and "gov" (place) which means "a divine place" etc. There is a similar toponym Osogna, a village in Switzerland.

    The historical documents testify that Macedonian town of Kratovo was founded by Saxon (Sasi) miners in year 1282. In that time, Kratovo became one of the biggest towns and a major mining centre in Macedonia for gold and silver. Saxons shortly after their arrival in Macedonia adopted the Slavic Macedonian language as all the schools in Kratovo in 14 cent. were in this language, including the famous Medieval Transcription Kratovo School.
    The Code of Serbian Czar Stefan Dušan from 14 Cent. mentions Sasi (Saxons) as an ethnic group in his empire.

    Indeed, the Nordish element is clearly visible upon them. The German miners, peasent and merchant had spread to all East-Europe and among the Germans use to marriage between 1st or 2nd cousins, they have carried own racial traits.

    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."
    /King Baldwin IV in the Kingdom of Heaven/
