    Dear Ann, I am not in love with Judith Butler... But give her the benefit of the doubt. After the Hitler-Chamberlain Munich accord from 1938 Wikipedia says: "In early November 1938, under the first Vienna Award, which was a result of the Munich agreement, Czechoslovakia (and later Slovakia) ? after it had failed to reach a compromise with Hungary and Poland ? was forced by Germany and Italy to cede southern Slovakia (one third of Slovak territory) to Hungary, and Poland obtained small territorial cessions shortly after." Many Hungarian speaking Jews from "Carpathian Ruthenia" who had rights under Chechoslovakia, started to be persecuted under the returning Hungarian rule. (I learned that from the biography of Doctor M. L. of Ashkelon). It might not have applied to the jews in post-Trianon Hungary proper. I do not know. It is possible that J. Butler's relatives where from one of those four counties (Ung, Bereg, Ugocsa, Maramoros)... Best Wishes, sf
