Organizations and Resources for Austrians in Cleveland


Gottscheer Club of Cleveland

The Erster Österreichischer Unterstützungs Verein (The First Austrian Mutual Aid Society) E.O.U.V., is the the Gottscheer Club of Cleveland, Ohio. They are very proud to be the oldest Gottscheer organization in North America.

In the late nineteenth century, many people from Gottschee immigrated to North America, and many of these people settled in the Cleveland area. Of these, numerous Gottscheers found employment in labor intensive industries; and, since the were no social security benefits or labor unions back then, they were forced to aid one another. At a Gottscheer wedding at the Perz Hall on East 79th Street near Woodland Avenue, some of the Gottscheer men discussed forming a mutual aid group. The group was called The First Austrian Mutual Aid Society, or Erster Österreichischer Unterstützungs Verein.

Gottscheer Park has been the home of E.O.U.V. for more than a quarter of a century. Located in Novelty, a southeast suburb of Cleveland, Gottscheer Park is a beautiful 56 acre setting for just about all of the club's social and cultural events.

Austria

Once the center of power for the large Austro-Hungarian Empire, Austria was reduced to a small republic after its defeat in World War I.

Following annexation by Nazi Germany in 1938 and subsequent occupation by the victorious Allies in 1945, Austria's status remained unclear for a decade. A State Treaty signed in 1955 ended the occupation, recognized Austria's independence, and forbade unification with Germany. A constitutional law that same year declared the country's "perpetual neutrality" as a condition for Soviet military withdrawal.

The Soviet Union's collapse in 1991 and Austria's entry into the European Union in 1995 have altered the meaning of this neutrality.

A prosperous, democratic country, Austria entered the EU Economic and Monetary Union in 1999.
