Wendish versus Windish


You don't want to get Wendish confused with Windish. For an explanation about the Windish people of the world, please click on the following link: Windish/Slovenes of the World.


From Tibor Horvat and Joël Gerber:

Thank you very much for your email and for adding our website to your forum! We appreciate this very much!

We added your websites to our link collection www.vendvidek.com.

We are sure that visitors of our website are interested to learn more about another Slavonic people with a similar external designation like the Raba Region Slovenes (Wendish / Windish).

Yes, between the Wendish/Sorbs and the Windish/Slovenes there is actually no connection, except that both are Slavonics and due to the fact, that both ethnic groups are within the German-speaking area, they were termed as "Wenden/Vendek." The other Slavonic groups like Czechs, Slovaks, Serbs, Croatians, etc were not called "Wenden/Vendek," because they are not within the German-speaking area. The term "Wenden/Vendek" was given to the Sorbs and Slovenes from outside, even though the Sorbs and the Slovenes never called themselves in their own Slavonic language like this.

Lep pozdrav in želimo Vam vse najboljše!
Greetings and wishing you all the best!
