German Folklore Map

The German Folklore Map showcases the locations of the various legends I have translated, as well as links to both my translations and the original German source material.

Since I primarily use 19th century German-language folklore collections as sources, this includes many legends from places outside of modern-day Germany. Beyond Austria and the German-speaking regions of Switzerland, these are:

  • The Alsace, now in France, which long had a large German-speaking population.
  • Ethnic Germans living in the territories of the modern-day Czech Republic (the Sudeten Germans) and Poland. Most of these were expulsed after WWII as a direct consequence of the many atrocities the Third Reich committed against the Polish and Czech people during World War 2.
