Memorandum concerning the future survival of the Sorbian people in the Federal Republic of Germany / Domowina
During their 1,400 year history the Lusatian Sorbs have had to endure social exclusion and prohibition by nationalist and chauvinistic forces as well as the consequences of an extensive mining policy, which has destroyed over a hundred villages since 1924.

Their numbers have steadily decreased as a result of assimilation and Germanization.
