      Yes, the ""It was due to the "anti-Czech" votes by> some German and
      Austrian conservatives."" reflects the political power of the Germans
      driven out of the former Sudetenland. They are quite powerful
      political factions in those countries, and seem to be continuing teh
      power on into the next generation.

      Happily this is a Slovak list so we can avoid the topic! Emotions are
      still quite high. I believe Thomas Reimer contributes to this list
      and has a website on the topic at http://www.geocities.com/ycrtmr/
