Magyarization and reasons for immigrating to America

Conditions in Eastern Slovakia were extremely dire at the time of their Immigration. The Hungarians (The Magyars) were brutally imposing their national authority on the Slovaks. "Magyarization" or the repression of Slovak customs, language, identity was very common. In some cases, Slovak children were taken from their parents and cleansed of their identity.
