This study is devoted to the special features of the ethnographic research of German speaking lumberjacks – “huncokars” – which took place from the 1920s to the 1940s and was conducted by researchers working in German and Sudeten German ethnographic organizations. At that time, the lay and expert publics were increasingly interested in the living conditions, customs and traditions, and culture of the German population that lived beyond the borders of the Weimar Republic and later the Third Reich. The Huncokars were particularly interesting for researchers because of the fact that they lived apart from the majority (Slovak) population in mountainous regions of western Slovakia. They were an endogamous and ethnically closed community. The main goal of this study is to identify and analyze the most frequent topics of German and Sudeten German research related to the Huncokar population.
