BURGER IS A DUTCH WORD MEANING A CITIZEN


My friend,

If you are/have been following the whole, you can see that our context is German not Dutch (which is a province in The Netherlands).

Yes, Dutch 'Burger' has its equivalent in German and that is 'Bürger' both meaning 'citizen'.

When I was young, we had a similar term called 'being-to'
