US president addresses SNP anniversary

AS SLOVAKIA commemorated the 60th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising (SNP) against the Nazis on August 29, US President George Bush sent his greetings.

During World War II, the United States and allied nations came together to defeat Nazism, the message stated. It went on to say that by engaging approximately 50,000 Nazi soldiers, the Slovak National Uprising demonstrated the hope, courage, and conviction of the Slovak people.

According to Bush, these values helped Slovaks endure four decades behind the Iron Curtain and are evident today as Slovaks build democratic traditions and participate in peacekeeping missions to advance freedom around the world.

Bush thanked the Slovaks who helped captured Americans escape from prison camps, as well as those who risked their lives to provide food, clothing, and shelter to Americans in need.
