    Serbien: Erzbischof weiht Donauschwaben-Gedenkstätte ein

    Berlin-Belgrad, 05.05.2017 (KAP/KNA) Serben und Deutsche weihen am Samstag im serbischen Backi Jarak gemeinsam eine Gedenkstätte ein, die an die Internierung und den Tod Tausender Donauschwaben am Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs erinnert. Die Errichtung des Gedenkkreuzes sei ein sichtbares Zeichen der bereits vor Jahren begonnenen beidseitigen Versöhnung, betonte der Bundesvorsitzende der Landsmannschaft der Donauschwaben in Deutschland, Hans Supritz, im Vorfeld. Nach Angaben des Verbandes kamen zwischen 1944 und 1948 in mehreren Lagern der Region Vojvodina mehr als 30.000 Donauschwaben um. Bei der Einweihung des Gedenkortes spricht der frühere Vorsitzende der Deutschen Bischofskonferenz, Erzbischof Robert Zollitsch.

    Zollitsch entstammt einer donauschwäbischen Familie. Er wurde 1938 in Filipowa (Filipovo), heute Backi Gracac, geboren. Im Herbst 1944 wurden 212 deutschstämmige Ortseinwohner durch die Jugoslawische Volksbefreiungsarmee ermordet. Unter den Ermordeten befand sich Zollitschs damals 16-jähriger Bruder, nicht jedoch sein älterer Bruder Paul, der 2010 im Alter von 85 Jahren starb. Der sechsjährige Robert Zollitsch, seine Großmutter und drei Cousinen wurden in das Lager Gakovo im Gemeindegebiet von Sombor gebracht. Die restliche deutschstämmige Bevölkerung von Filipovo wurde größtenteils vertrieben. 1946 floh die Familie Zollitsch nach Deutschland.

    Die Vorsitzende der Stiftung Zentrum gegen Vertreibungen, Erika Steinbach, sprach am Donnerstag in Bonn von einem wichtigen Schritt der Versöhnung. Serbien zeige sich mit der Einweihung als ein Land, das auch zu dunklen historischen Kapiteln stehe und das Leid der Opfer anerkenne. Allein in Backi Jarak wurden laut Steinbachs Angaben 7.000 Zivilisten wegen ihrer deutschen Nationalität ermordet.

    Serbia: Archbishop dedicates Donauschwaben Memorial

    Berlin-Belgrade, 05.05.2017 (KAP / KNA) On Saturday, Serbs and Germans in Serbian Backi Jarak will dedicate a memorial to commemorate the internment and death of thousands of Donauschwaben at the end of the Second World War. The erection of the memorial cross was a visible sign of the two-sided reconciliation which had begun years ago, emphasized the Federal President of the Landsmannschaft der Donauschwaben in Germany, Hans Supritz, in advance. According to the association, between 1944 and 1948, more than 30,000 Donauschwaben came from several camps in the Vojvodina region. At the inauguration of the memorial, the former chairman of the German Bishops' Conference, Archbishop Robert Zollitsch.

    Zollitsch came from a Donauschwäb family. He was born in 1938 in Filipovo, today Backi Gracac. In the autumn of 1944, 212 local Germans were murdered by the Yugoslav National Liberation Army. Among the murdered was Zollitsch's then 16-year-old brother, but not his older brother Paul, who died in 2010 at the age of 85 years. Six-year-old Robert Zollitsch, his grandmother and three cousins ​​were taken to the Gakovo camp in Sombor village. The rest of the German population of Filipovo has been largely expelled. In 1946, the Zollitsch family fled to Germany.

    The chairman of the Center against Expulsion, Erika Steinbach, spoke on Thursday in Bonn of an important step of reconciliation. Serbia showed itself to be a country, which also stands as a dark historical chapter, recognizing the suffering of the victims. In Backi Jarak alone, according to Steinbachs, 7,000 civilians were murdered because of their German nationality.

    And the hate-mongering begins...



    "Just shoot Hans, they will erect us a monument in 70 years"


    It probably won't take long before the monument gets vandalised. It has happened before.
