Andreas on Journey to Adelaide, Australia – Episode 770

Thanks for taking me again to Adelaide, the place I spent 3 months on pupil alternate in 1992. Shout-out to Concordia Faculty!

However I do need to weigh in on the Captain Hahn controversy, as a result of I used to be shocked once you, Chris, mentioned that he was Danish, not German. As a result of the identify is clearly German.

What occurred is that he was born on the island of Sylt, which had semi-autonomy inside the Danish Kingdom and have become a part of Prussia in 1866 (after Hahn’s demise).
So, it could nicely have been that he was a Danish citizen, however ethnically and linguistically, he was likely German (or Prussian). He additionally sailed on a German ship and took German settlers to South Australia.

Earlier than the time of nation states, I at all times discover it a bit difficult to say that somebody was of this or that citizenship. Particularly so on the subject of multi-ethnic empires or, like within the case of Germany, to international locations that merely didn’t exist on the time. (Germany as a nation state was solely established in 1871, after Hahn’s demise. Nevertheless, that doesn’t imply that folks didn’t have a notion of being German earlier than, a minimum of for the reason that [failed] revolution of 1848.)
And much more so in that fraught area, which gave us the well-known Schleswig-Holstein query.

Till immediately, there’s a German minority in Denmark and a Danish minority in Germany, each protected by legal guidelines and treaties.
I contact on this in my report a couple of very lengthy practice experience from Germany to Sweden, to shut on a travel-related word: https://andreasmoser.weblog/2021/08/30/train-stockholm/
