    Quite a few locals think it is a hoax, in that it was "planted" http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/do...07-h0x5za.html

    If it is a hoax, whoever cooked it up was familiar with German spelling from the 19th century, for example, use of the archaic Heimath in place of the modern German Heimat (home, place of origin).
