Sorbian daily online

Known traditionally in English as Wends, Lusatian Sorbs or Lusatian Serbs, the Sorbs are a people who live in in Lusatia, located in the east portion of Germany, west portion of Poland and north portion of the Czech Republic.

Among the approximately 60K Sorbs, about 25K speak one of the two Sorbian languages: Upper Sorbian (hsb) and Lower Sorbian (dsb). According to “Minority languages getting their voices heard,” the only Sorbian daily newspaper has launched an online version.

Titled “Serbske Nowiny,” the newspaper was originally founded in 1920 and revived in 1947 after a 10-year ban by the Nazi regime. It is not clear which Sorbian language the newspaper uses.
