heimat
 n.— «From the Weimar Republic to the Federal Republic, from the Great War to the Cold War—these cataclysms transform their lives, yet their heimat, their shared sense of homeland, prevails. “Heimat” means something special, not just for Germans, but for all of us. It’s not just the place you come from. It’s the place where you belong.» —“There’s no place like home” by William Cook Independent (U.K.) Sept. 19, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
