1. The Gottscheer Emigration; how it really was.
www.gottschee.net, 6 May 2007 [cached]
In the April 1 1998 issue of the Gottscheer Zeitung, Dr. Victor Michitsch, chairman of the Gottscheer Landsmannschaft in Klagenfurt, offers his explanation of a report of the Slovene historian Zdravko Troha.
...
In his article, "Explanation of an Article in Dolenski List", Dr. Michitsch counters the historical events presented by Troha on the Resettlement (Umsiedlung) of the Gottscheer.
...
Unfortunately, Dr. Michitsch does not quote all relevant assertions of Troha which produce these explanations and in addition, Dr. Michitsch does not support his counter arguments with documented facts.

...
Dr. Michitsch justifies his explanations only with personal observations and the reader can, therefore, not accept the opposing views of the chairman as historical facts.
Since I count myself among this group of readers, I will attempt to place the explanations of Dr. Michitsch into an accurate perspective using documented facts.
...
This pressure came, however, not directly either from the Italian occupiers of Slovenia nor from the Germans as Dr. Michitsch explains. The pressure came from the leadership of the ethnic group under the 25 year old Gottscheer Wilhelm Lampeter, his militia (Mannschaft), and his propaganda organ the Gottscheer Zeitung, then under his complete control.
...
The pronouncements of Dr. Michitsch are contrary to facts and therefore are a veiling of our history.
...
The urge to undertake this task comes, ironically, from an appeal of Dr. Michitsch who in 1988 (prior to the resurfacing of Lampeter) challenged us under the title:
...
The following paragraphs will examine and place into accurate perspective the assertions of Dr. Michitsch, principally through the quotation of documented facts. These assertions were translated from his article in the April 1998 issue of Gottscheer Zeitung.
...
The explanation of Michitsch gives the impression that the Italians and the Germans had a discussion in which it was decided to resettle the Gottscheer.
...
Frensing also quotes a report from Dr. Michitsch, dated 15 July, 1965:
...
Dr. Michitsch is one of many who describe the pressure and threats of the Gottscheer Leadership. The Reverend Gliebe was my teacher (and a good friend of my father) who passionately loved his people and his homeland and foresaw in the Resettlement the end of both. He and the other clergymen, therefore, described the young leaders as the "Rotzbuben" or snot boys and this produced the following announcement from the EG Leadership:
...
In his lecture "Der Heimat dienen" [to serve the homeland] in the summer of 1989, Dr. Michitsch explains to his listeners:
...
Dr. Michitsch uses Point 4 for his concluding explanation.
...
In Point 5, Dr. Michitsch omits to mention that it was the Gottscheer leadership that prevented the announcement of the resettlement destination. In Point 6, Dr. Michitsch again does not separate the average Gottscheer from Lampeter and his Leadership.
...
Michitsch rejects the assertion of Trohar that the departing Gottscheer could take with them all their belongings into their new homeland.
...
This Article and the effort of my father fully contradict the explanation of Dr. Michitsch and prove the opposite of what he is asserting.
...
The explanation by Dr. Michitsch that all the property and the allocated lands belonged to the DAG, as well as his assertion that the Gottscheer were only day laborers on the allocated lands, is contrary to fact.
...
Even in Point 8 do the documented facts contradict the explanation of Dr. Michitsch. The in-gathered citizens of the Reich were, in every way, assisted by the DAG.
9. "The Gottscheer re-settlers have, until today, not received restitution for their movable as well as immovable property. [M.GZ.4/98] Here again the documented facts contradict the assertion of Dr. Michitsch.
...
The documented facts regarding the nine points made by Dr. Michitsch in the April 1998 issue of the Gottscheer Zeitung not only refute his explanations but actually show the opposite. The only logical conclusion for this distortion can be found in the re-emergence in Gottscheer Leadership circles of those individuals who assisted Hitler with the Ingathering Policy and made the resettlement possible.
This forces the logical observer to suspect that it is their influence that caused Dr. Michitsch to abandon the message of his appeal of 1989; "To serve our heritage...we must watch out that our history is not falsified..."
As described in the Introduction, the validity of the points of Dr. Michitsch is contrary to the facts as compiled by Frensing.
...
It is clear that Dr. Victor Michitsch, chairman of the Gottscheer Landsmannschaft in Klagenfurt, business manager of the Gottscheer Arbeitsgemeinschaft of all Gottscheer Associations world wide and publisher of the Gottscheer Zeitung, is attempting to remove an often mentioned collective guilt for the Resettlement from the average Gottscheer.
This effort will fail if he continues to include in this attempt the Gottscheer leadership of that period.
By hiding the role of the Lampeter Leadership, Dr. Michitsch may be deflecting the spotlight but he is doing so at the expense of the Gottscheer people and their heritage as a whole.
...
Also present were Dr. Michitsch and Dr. Herbert Krauland, the chairman of the Gottscheer Arbeitsgemeinschaft, located in Klagenfurt.
...
Prior to the emergence of Lampeter, Dr. Michitsch pleaded with us that "we must watch out that our history is not falsified...".
...
Today, the same Dr. Michitsch is distorting our history in the face of documented facts.
...
In the ten years since the return of Lampeter, the political activity of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft, of which Dr. Michitsch and Dr. Krauland are the most eminent members, has been raised to a much higher level.
