The plaque commemorates the ethnic German - speaking population (the Donauschwaben) who lived in Hungary, Serbia, Romaina and Croatia especially in the Danube River valley, who were displaced after the end of World War Two and settled in South Australia.

Most of the Donauschwaben were descended from late 18th century settlers recruited by Austria-Hungary to repopulate the area and restore agriculture after the expulsion of the Ottoman Empire. They were able to keep their language and religion and initially developed strongly German communities.
