Croatian Emigrant Almanac 2016 presented in Zagreb

The Croatian Emigrant Almanac 2016 was presented in the offices of the Croatian Heritage Foundation (HMI) in Zagreb on Friday, on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of that organisation.

HMI director Marin Knezovic said that Croatian expatriates gave an important contribution to the development of the Croatian culture, and that the HMI trilingual almanacs covered the work of the Croatian diaspora.

The latest almanac includes 32 articles contributed by renowned authors and published in Croatian, Spanish and English.

The sections in the latest almanac are: Signs of the Times, Croatian Philological Horizons, Heritage, Bridges, A History, Spirituality, Science, and New Books.

"The Croatian Emigrant Almanac is a multi-purpose serial publication, available in printed and electronic form that analytically follows the social and cultural activities of the Croatian nation in the Homeland and the Emigration. With this demanding series of publications the Croatian Heritage Foundation endeavors to first and foremost encourage cultural exchange between the Croatian emigration and the Homeland. The decision of the Croatian Emigrant Almanac's publisher to print the Almanac in a trilingual form (Croatian, English and Spanish) is, therefore, understandable in order to bridge the language barrier and thereby be accessible to people of Croatian extraction from fifty countries across the globe that no longer use the Croatian language but rather that of their domicile country," the HMI says on its web site.
