|Apám / My Father|
The author left Transylvania when the Romanians took over as a result of the Treaty of Trianon at the end of World War I. His father too went to Budapest where he had an apartment on the fifth (our sixth) floor. Here he is depicted as having watered and picked the faded growth off five geraniums on his balcony – he had been master of nine acres back home, now the property of a foreigner. In his musing, a car’s motor starting up below reminds him of a cart long ago throwing up a cloud of dust by the old manor house along the Nyárád River. See the full story...

“To be or not to be” a Hungarian
Ninety-nine years ago, an unimaginable tragedy occurred to a nation I proudly call my own. All my ancestors, as far as we know, were born in the Dunántúl region of Hungary. They were Hungarians and Hungarian citizens. So are my sisters and I. We were all Hungarian citizens. I left the country over 50 years ago; I am still a Hungarian citizen.
Not so with many people, who were born on Hungarian land, never left their birthplace, not even their house where they were born. Thanks to the Trianon Treaty, they lost their citizenship, more than once.
I will tell you a true story that will blow your mind. See the full story...
