Hi, die Dt. ließen noch mehr heil. Faymonville hieß Außenborn, gehörte zum Amt Weismes. Die preußischen bzw. dt. Gebiete mußten nach 1918 (Versailler Diktat) an Belgien abgetreten werden. Die Außenborner nannten sich selbst: Türken, waren mehrheitlich für den Anschluß an das Dt. Reich. siehe Link.

The inhabitants of Faymonville are nicknamed Turks. The local football club is RFC Turkania, the youth association is "The United Young Turks" and the hotel of the village is named "At the Old Sultan's". A legend says that the nickname dates back to the battle of Amel (716) known as T�rkenschlacht (Turks' battle). There is, however, a more plausible explanation of the nickname: in the XVIth-XVIIth centuries, the Princes-Abbots of Stavelot often collected taxes to fund the war of the Holy Empire against the Ottomans; the collects were common in the churches depending on monasteries, like in Waimes, and were not very popular. At that time, Faymonville depended on the Duchy of Luxembourg and had not to pay taxes; accordingly, the inhabitants of Faymonville were accusated to support the enemies of the Empire and were nicknamed Turks. The flag used in Faymonville is indeed the Turkish national flag. Images can be seen on the Anadolu website. Accordongly, the Turkish flag is used during parades but is also hoisted on the village square along with the flags of Belgium and Wallonia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eupen-Malmedy#1940-1945_Annexed_to_Germany Zitat: During World War II the East Cantons (and some other small villages that had been Belgian but German speaking in 1914) were annexed by Nazi Germany, with the clear consent of most of the inhabitants.[citation needed]Support for the German takeover eroded sharply after the German invasion of the Soviet Union and the subsequent conscription of most of the male population into the German army (out of 8,700 drafted new Germans, 3,200 perished in the East). In December 1944 bomber raids first destroyed Malmedy, then Sankt Vith almost completely. Many communities were similarly affected by the Ardennes Offensive of 1944-45. Indeed, the southern part of the East Cantons was the theatre of hard battles including St. Vith, Rocherath-Krinkelt, Bütgenbach and many others. [edit]

Die Belgier sind schon ein verrücktes Völkchen...In der Nähe gibt es eine Region, in der sehr viel Esperanto gesprochen wird und mal fast ein anarchistischer Antistaat war.

Ursache der Bezeichnung Türken ist wohl, daß die Einwohner bestimmte Steuern nicht zahlen mussten, weil sie andere Lehensherren hatten. daher nannten sie die neidischen Nachbarn "Türken".

Genutzt hat ihnen ihre türkische Folklore im Endeffekt nichts: "During the battle of the Bulge, the town has been severely shelled and more than 50% of the buildings were completely destroyed, most the remaining ones incurring severe damages." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faymonville

Aus Sinn für Humor ?!
