I hope Tony Pacek will also get a hold of it so he may tone down his
rabid characterization of Horthy as demonstrated in the following
recent exchange on the Slovak-L list. He responded to a moderate Slovak's
comments, denoted with the ">" prefixes:

Its interesting that the occupation of southern Slovakia by Horthy's
stormtroopers in 1939 and the subsequent deportations of 40,000 Jews
by them are never mentioned in your reference to the period 1939-1945.
Ivan Kuhn had written previously that you were neighbors in Roznava.
Wasn't Roznava under Hungarian administration 1939 - 1945, yet all of
the references to the period have only alluded to the "fascist" Slovak
state with no mention whatsoever of the policies practiced by Horthy's
occupation administration in southern Slovakia.
Horthy's "stromtroopers"! On horses and bicycles, huh?
Anyway, I was really curious how he would respond to Tibor Hegedus'
excellent article about the Hungarian and Slovak election systems
rebutting Tony's often repeated canned falsehoods, but so far I haven't
seen anything from him. Not even by shifting the subject to something
else, as he usually does when squeezed. Well, maybe he is just choking
on the last Hungarian he had for breakfast. ;-)

Is this a promise or a threat? For the fulfillment of this prophecy

I know Tom Sakmyster personally. He is a good man and a good historian. I am
glad that he has a new book out, especially since it is on Horthy. A decent
Horthy biography is sorely needed.

Sure. Or are slang terms generally not translated using
"regular" words? I think that embarrass is exactly what "leegni" means.

I am a US artist applying for a grant from ARTSLINK to travel to Mezokovesd to
study the culture, embroideries and folk art there.
I am having difficulty establishing contacts in Mezokovesd--I have even faxed
the Mayor's office (with no reply). I am trying to contact the Matyos Muzeum,
but telephoning is difficult (but they do speak English), do they have a fax
number?a(Sending a letter would take too long--the grant is due in a few weeks)
Information in the US about Mezokovesd and Hungarian folk art is
limited. Most of the books I have found (in the New York Public Library,
the Brooklyn Museum library) are over 50 years old and contain little
If anyone has any ideas, or the name of a cultural organization or
university in the region (with fax number?) I would be grateful. ALso, if
you have any ideas or suggestions at all, I would appreciate them.
Please e-mail me at
