Ungarndeutsche

Hungary Minority: German minority in Hungary

The selection „Ungarndeutsche“ is representing the German minority in Hungary at the EUROPEADA 2016. German settlers have arrived already during the Middle Age to Hungary. King Stephen saw the uptake of foreign guests as an enrichment for the development of the country. Further groups were called during the Middle Age by the Hungarian King for building up the country. Only the growing National Socialism of the 19th century and the specific assimilation policy gave rise to big parts of the German bourgeoisie in Hungary, although Hungary possessed a commendable minority law. During the following years different training measures for funding the awareness of vernacular and customs were adopted in order to prevent the loss of the German language among the Germans of Hungary. Part of this was the foundation of the Hungarian German cultural association of the nation (UDV). The dreads of World War II lead already during the war within the scope of the agrarian reform to the dispossession of the agricultural properties and houses of the German population. After its end the majority of the Germans in Hungary were dispersed from the country. Today the number of in Hungary remained Germans amounts 220,000, from the previously 300 German bulk communities only seven left over. At the population census of 2001 only 34,000 people stated German as their mother tongue. The strong assimilation causes also a continuous decline of those, who speak the typical dialect.
