Hartmut Koschyk, Germany’s Federal Government Commissioner for Matters Related to Ethnic German Resettlers and National Minorities, has visited the German minority in Serbia. After discussing numerous possibilities for joint projects with the Mayor of Sombor, he met with representatives of all existing associations of the German minority.
Then, accompanied by Ambassador H.E. Axel Dittmann, Mr Koschyk visited the Bački Jarak memorial, which was formally unveiled in May this year, and paid tribute to all members of the German minority who died at the detention camp there between 1944 and 1946.
At the end of his visit to Serbia, Bundestag Member Koschyk spoke with representatives of civil society organisations and religious communities, who reassured him of the existence of good protection of minorities in Serbia and close cooperation on religious issues.
