From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Serbs and Sorbs are believed to have common ancestry from the White Serbs who lived around the territory of the Sudetes mountain range.[citation needed] The Serbs call themselves Srbi, the Sorbs call themselves Serby. Sorbs use the term Južni Serbja (English: South Serbs) for Serbs.[1]

During World War I one of the most important commanders in the Serbian army was Pavle Jurišić Šturm, a Serbian general of Sorbian origin.[2] In 1944 Sorb writer Jurij Češka was killed on his way to join Yugoslav Partisans.[3] He introduced modern poetry in Sorbian literature.[3]
