A view from Rabaul around 1900.

Unserdeutsch ("Our German"), or Rabaul Creole German, is a German-based Creole language spoken primarily in Papua New Guinea and the northeast of Australia. It was formed among the New Guinean children residing in a German-run orphanage. Fewer than 100 native speakers survive today, 15 of whom live in New Britain.
