Dear All,

the homepage of the Sorbian institute is found on this webpage:


this is the link to the dictionary (Upper Sorbian):


from there, you should find a link to the primer for Upper Sorbian

More general information on the Sorbs can be found on this page:


there you will find links to Sorbian institutions linke the Domowina,
cultural information centers etc.

The letter of protest from the Domowina is also available in English,
I don't know if it's available on the net yet, but I'll find out and
post the adress. There is a link to the German letter of protest from
the sorben-wenden page.

The proposed cut back of funds would not only mean stopping new
Sorbian projects, but also undermine present efforts in cultural and
linguistics activities.

I hope that international protest will make the German government
rethink its plans.
