All Gone… Home?

While on holiday in Serbia, in Banat our car drove through village, and we were told it was once a totally German village, and now home to 26 nations.

Monastry at Mesic in Serbia
Monastry at Mesic in Serbia

Those who held the land
Who built a Reich proud and true
Are like their great state..

Where are those today
Who here lived before the war?
All gone… home… they say.

There is no German now
Heard spoken on the street:
Echoing the air

On leaving the village of the twenty six nationalities, by its complexity being the exact opposite of what it was, it stayed in my brain that the monoethnicity of its origions was reinforced.

Have your say...
