We welcome you to the HOG Sekitsch-Feketitsch Homepage
With this we would like to introduce you to our Verein zur Pflege Donauschwäbischer Heimatkunde e.V. and to the communities of Lovćenac (Sekitsch) and Feketić (Feketitsch).Before you continue to browse through our homepage, allow us to give you some insight into our concept and purpose. The following pages serve not only to provide you with information on these communities and on Donauschwabentum– the history of emigration of Germans along the Danube River – but also to establish contact between Sekitscher and Feketitscher descendents, no matter what part of the world you live in! They are also meant to offer the opportunity to help maintain an awareness of our heritage and encourage further efforts along these lines.
Task and Goal
The HOG Sekitsch / Feketitsch serves as a coordinating center for its members. After expulsion from their home towns, they settled in Germany, but as well in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Serbia and Liechtenstein.
The goal of HOG is to inform about traditional customs. Beyond that, we wish to create a spirit of friendship among peoples. This also means establishing contact with those now living in Sekitsch and Feketitsch to enable us to work together in mutual respect and friendship, towards reconciling the past and creating a better future.
Should you have any questions, recommendations or additional information, we would be most happy to hear from you.
