Reader feedback: Triumphant return

Re: Slovakia losing its traditional tourists, Flash news briefs, Aug 29 - Sept 5, Vol 10, No 33

How about promoting a "return to Slovakia" for people of Slovak descent? Emigrants from Slovakia are all over the world. Many people whose parents or grandparents were born in Slovakia would respond to the invitation, especially if they knew the warm reception they would receive.

One hundred years after my family left the country, a visit last year refreshed my Slovak pride. I expect to return soon. Others that have lived in Slovakia or know the culture through past generations would surely respond.
