      As Catholics, they would normally not have had any problems in Slovakia--the authoritarian Slovak State created in March 1939 was, after all, strongly Catholic. However, since the US did not recognize independent Slovakia, I'm not sure if regular international mail service was available from the US to Slovakia. This of course would apply if they had moved away to another place in Slovakia, since Kassa was returned to Hungary from November 1938 till the end of WW II, another change the US did not recognize. Does anyone know more about whether US mail service was available at all for the area?
