I visited an orphanage in Tornanadaska, right on the Slovakian border in
October 1995. The orphanage is in a very beautiful castle, Hadick Castle I
believe. The most amazing thing that I saw on my three-hour visit was the
amount of love I saw for the children on the part of the staff. The children,
who were about 2/3 Hungarian and 1/3 Roma, clearly reciprocated this love. The
children were very well taken care of, as evidenced by their meals, clothing,
and educational program. The orphanage had just received some computers from
another European country.
The staff had made a considerable effort to keep the facilities in good repair
over the years. There only seemed to be a few immediate problems, like a room
(the computer room) that was filled with mold, which gave me a serious alergic
reaction, and buckled flooring in several areas.
The larger problem is that the staff is hanging on by a thread. Funding has
been cut quite a bit, and the future is not bright to even maintain their
reduced level of funding. I was told some of the staff are not being paid, and
that they are more or less volunteering much of their time. There is the
problem, too, that with reduced staff and resources, maintainance and repairs
of the castle are not being carried out properly, and the buildings are
deteriorating. We discussed some ideas for raising money locally through
various means, but this does not seem like a workable alternative to make up
such a deficit.
The orphanage also places its older children in houses in the Village of
Tornanadaska proper, to help integrate them into the community and teach them
how to live on their own among the general population. I observed this system,
too, and it seems to be working very well.
It would be a disaster to see this program and others like it in Hungary have
to cease operations because of lack of funding. The children they serve really
have no other alternatives.

As far as I remember the slang "BUJE'K" - Boldog Uj E'vet Kivanunk !!
However I don't find it very romantic to say.
In your case you should just say "Boldog Uj Evet Kiva'nok !!" since
the one I have above is plural form.
Good luck with your romance and remember that is't not always the
language but sometimes the quality of the gifts that matter ;)

The hatred you referred to in your mean spirited comment exists only in
your small mind. I traveled all over the world and what I experienced was
a respect for Hungarians and for the country of Hungary. Idiots like you
want to ignite hatred to build political power. Why is Rumania still a
totalitarian state and not a free country as Hungary? I think it is
because the current leaders deliberately fuel the national hatred and
"Mare Romania" idea. Shades of national dream of grandeour. A fellow named
Hitler and some others like him such as Antonescu did the same thing about
a half a century ago. They failed. I hope that the open border with
Hungary will open the eyes of the Rumanian people. They can see for
themselves what freedom can do for people. Democratic nations never
declare war on each other and once Romania becomes truly democratic there
wont be any reason to fear hostilities

Perhaps M. Christian has not had a chance to read the lastest (12/16/95)
issue of The Economist. In an article entitled "Are They
House-trained?" it states:
"In Slovakia and Romania. the old anti-democratic bully is emerging in
democratically elected leaders: Vladimir Meciar and Ion Iliescu are both
roughnecks for whom opposition and minority rights are dirty words. Mr
Meciar is behaving especially badly to ethnic minorities and has been
trying, with contested legality, to oust the lected president. Both
might be given the benefit of the doubt -- but the doubt remains."
The article, a couple of paragraphs down continues:
"Several top operators from the communist world, such as -- within the
old Soviet Union -- Georgia's Edward Shevardnadze and Lithuania's
Algirdas Brazukas have undergone sincere changes of heart. The same goes
for Hungary's Gyula Horn and probably Ukraine's Leonid Kuchma, now a
strong economic reformer."
I wonder if M. Christian would add the reporters and editors of this
London based, well respected news magazine to his list of "delusional
bovines". Perhaps he may find it a bit more productive to look in his
own back yard.

If you are referring to Boba's theory, it has already been discredited
through linguistic and archeological evidence. See the paper
by Henryk Birnbaum on Great Moravia, which was read several
years ago at the Slavists' conference in Bratislava and is published
in the volume containing the proceedings and papers from that
Few scholars today doubt that the political and religious
center of Great Moravia was found near the present border of Moravia,
Slovakia, and Austria.

Thanks to the dedication of Andras Szeitz and his collaborators, an
excellent history oriented home page exists on WWW for Hungary and
Transylvania. It should serve as an excellent resource in the historic
debates that surface in regular intervals on this and some other news
groups (s.c.r.) and lists.
The Web pages are found in the following two addresses:
Kudos to Andras & Co. for the great job!
