  • German community:  Before World War II Šidski Banovci was mostly populated by Germans. According to the census of 1910, Banovci had 990 residents, and 668 were Germans. They had developed a social life and a multitude of public institutions. The most important was the local Protestant church. Next door to the church was the school, which served as the city hall, and a bank was nearby. Local residents cherished traditional values, it was a village that maintained its strong work ethic. In late 1944 villagers had just barely escaped from Sidski Banovci. This was similar to that experienced by thousands of other ethnic Germans in the latter stages of World War II. The new post-war government declared that ethnic Germans in Yugoslavia were no longer citizens and confiscated their property. By 1945, nearly 500,000 Germans had been expelled the term that would be used in Article XIII of the Potsdam Agreement was “transfer”—from Yugoslavian territory. The residents of Sidski Banovci had some advanced warning from the German Army that they would have to leave their homes and evacuate the village. On October 17, with the Sidski Banovci church-bells pealing, a caravan of 40 to 50 families formed and proceeded out of the village and into the uncertain terrain ahead. They headed northwest toward Hungary. Huber family (Wilhelm Huber was born in 1824 and became the first Huber to settle in Sidski Banovci), in book The Past Rebuilt-The Huber Family Journey to Success, will describe their memories of that period.

German Exonyms For Places In Croatia - wikipedia - This is a list of German exonyms for toponyms in Croatia. Part of Croatia was governed by Austria-Hungary, and some Hungarian exonyms became common in German, and may be used interchangeably with the German exonym for a period. These Hungarian names are noted below. Also, parts of Croatia ruled by Austria-Hungary were formerly governed by Italy, and Italian names also migrated to German usage. These are also noted.
