Heimatbuch der Gemeinde Kudritz

This book was originally published in German in 1956. We discovered it in the possession of Leah Ott Duda. It had belonged to her great grandparents, John and Katie Bolen. It was translated with the kind generosity of Henry Fischer of Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. Edited by Karen Dalton Preston. Final e dit by Glenn Schwartz. Pictures incorporated by Roy Shiflet. Thanks to all who contributed to making it available in English on this platform.

We were unable to identify any surviving representatives of the author or publisher, but would welcome a discussion with any such representatives that may come forward.
