Regrettably there are only very
few pictures and paintings of
the beautiful Church in Jarek.

Its destruction started yet in
1944 and in the year 1946 it
was blown up and completely

There is a supermarket in its place today.

Jarek was founded in 1787 by 80 families with about 300 persons as an Evangelical (Lutheran) and, simultaneously, as the last Danube Swabian settlement in the Batschka.

The Lutheran Church in Jarek was built in the years 1821 to 1823 and dedicated also in 1823. When the Jarekers had to flee and had to leave their homeland in 1944, Jarek’s Danube Swabian history ended, and the destruction of the church was also begun, which ended in 1946 with its blowing up and complete destruction.
