Reader feedback: Hoping for healing

Re: Hungarian university faces nationalist fears, By Martina Pisárová, Nov 3-9, Vol 9, No 42

Unfortunately, the older generation of Slovaks still seem to have the past treatment of the Hungarians imbedded in them - especially that era when most Slovak schools were closed and the Slovak language was not allowed to be heard or spoken.

I believe, with the coming of age of the new generation, that these bad feelings will die out.

Time is the great healer, and it is past due to bury the hatchet and live in peace with one another. Let's only hope it is sooner rather than later in this regard.

Most Slovak believe that “we” should also include foreigners, although they are quick to point out that efforts to integrate should be undertaken mainly by the foreigners themselves.

What Slovaks shouldn’t forget when they dream of the perfect foreigner

Bratislava’s mayor is right that integration is a two-way street, but even the capital still has some way to go to see foreigners as residents rather than just visitors.
