Re: [S-R] naming traditions
- Thank you Frank, for all the information about the settlers and historical
facts on particular areas of Slovakia.
i wish that our own History courses taught during high school and college
would contain more history about Eastern Europe. even today's Eastern
European courses mostly deal with the Holocaust and The Soviet Union. i
looked into the curriculum for the Soviet Union and find that it mostly deals
with Russia itself. so it is interesting to learn from other members of this
list a partial history of Slovak Republic and some of the border countries.
Information on the Holocaust is very stagnated and does not contain more than
we have heard over and over. and no details. The Diary of Anne Frank is
still the required reading for these courses. I have learned far more on
this website about Eastern Europe than in any general course given in this
