History[edit]

The village was firstly mentioned in 1358. During Ottoman administration (16th-18th century) it was a Serb village. In 1728, it was settled by the Italians. Later, it was populated by Germans, and already in 1753, it was predominantly German settlement. The village was located in a swampy area in the Banat Region. The first German settlers in Kudritz came from the Mosel river area in Western Germany, Alsace and Lorraine between 1719 and 1728. Descendants of the German inhabitants lived here until the end of World War II, when most of them left from the area. After World War II, the village was populated by South Slavic (mostly Serb and Macedonian) settlers. 2002 census also recorded 3 villagers of German ethnicity.
