Cleveland, Ohio, has been the U.S. hub for all things related to Hungary and Hungarians since the nineteenth century. Between the mid-1800s and the late 1990s, the city welcomed six major waves of Hungarian immigrants. The community they created had its heyday in the late 1960s, when Hungarian schools and churches, arts, music, publishing, radio and TV, and civic organizations? especially scouting?all flourished. Today, Cleveland?s Hungarian community remains vibrant and continues to value and preserve its heritage despite the ongoing impact of economic, social and cultural changes, demographic shifts and gentrification. In this work, historian Endre Szentkiralyi examines the concept of 'being Hungarian in Cleveland,' using a variety of methodologies and drawing on his 47 years as an active member of that community. He looks at the community historically and sociologically via in-depth research into its language and literature, culture, and traditions.

Miksa Fenyo (1877?1972) a Hungarian writer and intellectual served as member of parliament and briefly was a member of the Hungarian cabinet. He was targeted by the Hungarian fascists and Hitler and had to go into hiding in 1944 after Hungary was occupied by its German allies. This memoir is his diary of the ten months in which he was in hiding. Written by an erudite, well-informed man who, while moving from safe haven to safe haven, nevertheless is able to look at the events of this period with his intellect, who was aware of what was happening in his country and the atrocities being perpetuated in its name, but who never lost his spirit and his hope. Fenyo's fear was never for himself but for his family and for his life long friends. This is a powerful diary and a "real time" recounting of one of the most devastating and shameful periods of Hungarian history. Translated by his son, Mario Fenyo a well known historian and translator, this book which is a valuable recounting of the period that has long deserved to be made available to the Anglophone reader is at last available in English. There is no doubt that it will take its place amongst the most powerful diaries written about the Holocaust.

In the darkness of the early morning of 3 March 1949, practically all of the Transylvanian aristocracy were arrested in their beds and loaded into lorries. That same day the Romanian Workers? Party was pleased to announce the successful deportation and dispossession of all large landowners. Communism demanded the destruction of these ultimate class enemies. Under the terror of Gheorghiu-Dej and later Ceau?escu the aristocracy led a double life: during the day they worked in quarries, steelworks and carpenters? yards; in the evening they secretly gathered and maintained the rituals of an older world. To record this unknown episode of recent history, Jaap Scholten travelled extensively in Romania and Hungary and sought out the few remaining aristocrats who experienced the night of 3 March 1949. He spoke to people who survived the Romanian Gulag and met the youngest generation of the once distinguished aristocracy to talk about the restitution of assets and about the future. How is it possible to rebuild anything in a country that finds itself in a moral vacuum?
