Hello Mr. Tolek,
How are you? Sorry, I wanted to read out my letter, but I found in it so many mistakes that I tried to correct them, but I couldn’t send the corrected one, the Forum didn’t allow me. That’s why I copied again, YOU DON’T HAVE TO READ IT AGAIN BECAUSE IT IS SAME THAN THE PREVIOUS WAS.
Hello Mr. Tolek,
Many thanks for your letter. It is interesting that sometimes I read about its shocking history of Wroclaw, but I didn’t imagine that I know a lot of things what it is mentioned in your brief history. I knew that it received its name about a Polish person. I knew that it was part of Bohemia, after it belonged to Austria Empire. I wrote with Hungary, but it was mistake of me because Hungary in that time was still a colony of Austria Empire. Only after the revolution of 1848 -in which lot of Polish soldiers participated - in 1867 was the Compromise with Austria and after this Austro-Hungarian monarchy came into being.
This Austrian Empire was terribly big, they tried to unify the different nations here in Center-Europe. For example, Lemberg/Lviv in Western Ukraine (now) used to be a Polish town, after it belonged to the Austra Empire, after Soviet Union and at last it became a town of the independent Ukraine. The history of Center Europe is very complicated . It is interesting that the Mongol Invasion was ( we say Tartar devastation was in the same year/in 1241 in Hungary than in Poland. In the English Wikipedia there is a paragraph about “Invasion of the Kingdom of Hungary” here I’ve read, and knew also “they reduces ashes the villages and towns and killed so many people that hardly any people left alive.”
I saw these films except In the Darkness. I have to confess that when I was younger I could watch these films in spite of the fact (that), I was crying, but today I can’t because I became upset for several days.
Chiefly my husband’s family was suffering very lot. Till my poor mother-in-law lived, she had an eternal remorse that she couldn’t save her brothers and their wives and their children. 6 people disappeared that nobody knows in which camp. We know only that one wife of them died in the wagon here in Hungary, and she had been buried here, but we never find her tomb.
Hungary was the last who was loyal to Hitler even he had lived in his bunker.
Now in 2013 there is again antisemitism in Hungary and our government doesn’t punish it because they don’t want to lose their voters. The Sun, English paper had a series of reports about the Hungarian situation. I don’t know they are writing about this or they finished. But there are more serious papers than the Guardian, The Economist, the Time etc who wrote and write from time to time about the situation in Hungary. And lot of Geman, Austrian newspapers also, but I don’t speak in German so I can’t read these ones.
Lately, I put a picture on one thread. It was very interesting because a German translator (now 70 year-old) told that they have remorse till today for the crime of their father and grandfather. He was very personal, and he spoke about himself and his remorse. Can you see this pages ?
I am greeting you warmly. Have a good weekend.
P.S. In the evening I corrected the first letter.
