Robert Hajszan’s Concerning Gradišće Croatian Pannonia documents the systematic work of an interesting historian and philologist, while on the other is demonstrates the robustness of the Gradišće Croatian community which has succeeded over more than 500 years to nurture and develop its language and culture within a majority Germanophone milieu.
At the Emigrant’s Club visitors will have an opportunity to view the ethnographic collection with exhibits from the island’s history and an exhibition of photos by Borislav Ostojić. A new promotional brochure on the island of Susak prepared by the Tourism Board of Mali Lošinj will also be presented.
The seventh Emigrant’s Day was organised by the Rijeka branch office of the CHF, the VMO Unije association, the City of Mali Lošinj, the Mali Lošinj Tourism Board, the Slow Food Unije+ association and the Shores Of Our Grandchildren association.
In August the CHF will organise the presentation of Ana Stražičić Rodrigez’s (aka Ana Mljećka) book, The Traditional Croatian Cuisine of the Dubrovnik Region. The author has roots in the island of Mljet and has lived for years in New York with her family.
