Tourism and Libraries in the Reannexed Terrotories, 1939-1944
Hungarian cultural policy after Trianon sought to foster national culture where it existed, and as a result of the Vienna Awards of 1939 and 1940, these policies were extended to re-annexed territories in southern Slovakia, the Banat, and Transylvania. Policies promoting tourism, on the one hand, and reestablishing teacher education programs and libraries, on the other, were two manifestations of rebuilding bridges between Hungarians within and outside of these territories. Relying on recent work by Ablonczy (on tourism) and Sipos (on teacher education and libraries), I will outline these policies, examine points where they intersect, discuss their progress, and review the effect and fate of these policies after 1944.
