      Hi Jean,
      my grandmother also spoke German, Polish, Slovak and Polish. She came from
      what was then the Austrio-Hungarian Empire. Today, her particular village was
      in the Eastern part of Slovakia near the town of Poprad. it is a spa and
      mineral water healing area of Slovakia and the reason that so many languages were
      learned is that many of the townspeople worked at the spas. many people of
      foreign countries such as Germany, would come and stay for spa treatments for
      what else do you know about the place? Belgrade is very far away, but maybe
      this will help give you another clue as to why all the languages.
