(German) So war’s im Donauschwabenland - Mundartgedichte von Sepp Stumper
Sepp Stumper was a fellow villager from Kathreinfeld who had found a new home in Vienna. In the course of time he has written numerous Donauschwaben poems, which all deal with the life of the Donauschwaben. In order to preserve the Donauschwäbische dialect, a CD was produced with audio samples of the most beautiful poems personally performed by the author. In order to make the texts understandable for our descendants, they were printed with a translation in a book. Book and CD together result in a unique work, which was sold like hot cakes right after its presentation. To give future generations an insight into the dialect of the Danube Swabians, the CD was published on YouTube and the book as PDF.
