Name[edit]

In Serbian the village is known as Neuzina (Неузина), in Hungarian as Nezsény, in Croatian as Neuzina, and in German as Nusin.

History[edit]

Historically, there were two Neuzina's, that later merged: Srpska Neuzina (Serb Neuzina) and Hrvatska Neuzina (Croat Neuzina).

Srpska Neuzina (Serbian Cyrillic: Српска Неузина, Croatian: Srpska Neuzina, Hungarian: Szerb-Neuzina, German: Serbisch Neusin) was few miles southwards from Sarča (today Sutjeska) and few miles westwards from Sečanj, while Hrvatska Neuzina (Serbian Cyrillic: Хрватска Неузина, Croatian: Hrvatska Neuzina, Hungarian: Horvát-Neuzina, German: Kroatisch Neusin) was in the very neighbourhood, located southwestwards from Srpska Neuzina, few miles northeastwards from Botoš.

Hrvatska Neuzina got its name after Croatian settlers (nobles that originated from Turopolje), that were settled there by the Diocese of Zagreb on its possessions.

In 1910, Srpska Neuzina was mainly populated by Serbs and Hrvatska Neuzina mainly by Croats.[1] Other ethnic groups in these villages included Hungarians and Germans. German population mostly left from the area after World War II and the Croat population also declined over time.
