      Just in case that the Slovak town names do not ring bells for descendants of
      Carpathian Germans
      who heard only the German names (after all, there were still 116 Germans
      left in 1930 in Grosssteffelsdorf, in what had been an old German mining
      town), here are the German ones:

      Puchov is in German Puchau
      Hac^ava is in German Wagnerhau
      Hnusta is in German Nusten
      Rimavska Sobota is in German Gross-Steffelsdorf
