Photographer's Note

Church in Jeruzalem.

The little town with the biblical name has 55 inhabitants. With the wine and the soft landscape the region reminds of Tuscany. With rustic food such as Sauerkraut and Black Pudding more to Germany.

Jeruzalem lies in the soft vineyards and meadows of the Slovenian Stajerska (English: Styria, German: Steiermark). This area belonged for many centuries as a so-called Lower Styria, to the Duchy of Styria. As a result of political realignments after the First World War in 1918 the southern regions of Styria were separated and assigned to the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.

The background of this decision may have been that German was regarded as the dominant official language and spoken by the officials and merchants, but otherwise the German-speaking population was mainly concentrated to the cities of Marburg (Maribor), Ptuj (Ptuj), Luttenberg (Ljutomer ) and Friedau (Ormoz). The majority of the population, especially in rural areas was part of the Slovenian language group.
