The Croatian Emigrant Almanac 2016 has been presented at the Croatian Heritage Foundation (Hrvatska Matica Iseljenika) in Zagreb…

“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 foundation, who marked their 65th anniversary on Friday, said.

The 365-page Croatian Emigrant Almanac, which is printed in Croatian, English and Spanish, focuses of work of the Croatian diaspora and features articles by more than 30 renowned authors.

“The decision of the Croatian Emigrant Almanac’s publisher to print the Almanac in a trilingual form 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 foundation added.

Sections in the almanac include; Signs of the Times, Croatian Philological Horizons, Heritage, Bridges, A History, Spirituality, Science, and New Books.
