German minority
Posted May 21st, 2012 - 12:39 pm by from Prague, Czech Republic (Permalink)
I am Philipp and I was in Denmark (Aabenraa) last year to study german minority.I was sent from our university (Czech agrocultural university in Prague - economic and cultural studies) by college lecturer (Kokaisl Petr, doc. Ing. PhDr. Ph.D.), who organises project called "Various Europe" (can not translate literally) - which focuses on minorities in Europe. Besides the main work (which is nearly complete) we are are supposed to do little research about typical charasterictics of both nations, Germans and Danes. And if its possible also find the differences between Germans in Nordschleswig and Germans in Germany. It is no big deal, just "homework" from our teacher, write an article. Still the more information we get the better.

So, if I may ask you for little help, what do you consider as typical characteristics of danish Germans and what are the typical Danes like (eventually "german Germans")?

Thanks for your time and hope not to bother you too much.

Philipp Nosák.

Hello Phillip,
i don't know any danish German, but eventually i can write you something about what i think how danish people are, if it helps you. My brother is living near Copenhagen with his little danish-german family. Have you got some answers or some themes?
Best regards
Lea Kehres
