Description[edit | edit source]

The German-speaking Community is one of the three federal communities of Belgium, part of the Walloon Region in the extreme east of the country. The area was annexed by Belgium after the First World War to compensate the country for the German occupation during that war. With about 75,000 inhabitants the German-speaking Community comprises less than one percent of Belgium's population. Long neglected, the German-speaking Belgians now enjoy the same rights as their Flemish and French-speaking compatriots. As a result, they are often dubbed 'the best protected minority of Europe' and 'the last true Belgians'.
