This may be him as a displaced person with wife and two kids coming in 1951 from Yugoslavia to Trumbauersville, PA (which is only a mile or so from Quakertown): https://www.ancestry.com/imageviewer/collections/61704/images/0225_81678914_1

Actually, he was born in Yugoslavia, his wife in Rumania, and the two kids in Austria after the war.

This appears to be the village founded by German settlers in what is now the Banat area of Serbia in the late 18th century; Germans lived here until 1945. See German Wikipedia article.

It appears that a genealogical history of the German families of this place for 1915-1947 was published in 2019 in CD-ROM format and can be ordered (if you know German) at https://www.akdff.de/wp/schriftenreihe-zur-donauschwaebischen-herkunftsforschung/. According to WorldCat, copies of the CD-ROM are owned by the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, and Harvard University Library.

Copies of baptismal and other records can also be ordered at zichydorfonline.org. It does not appear that these records are available online for free in any of the repositories of which I am aware.

Great - looks like Lori is still providing lookups from the genealogical history book.
