The Changing Relations between Hungarian-Americans and the Mother Country since the Late 19th Century
This paper will discuss how the relations between Hungary and Hungarian Americans changed, depending on the makeup of the political regime in Hungary, as well as of the political orientation of the specific groups of Hungarian Americans.
The lowest point of this relationship was during the period of Soviet Occupation and communist rule, when the huge majority of the emigrés wanted to have nothing to do with Hungary. They campaigned actively for the overthrow of the communist system, and also condemned any of their fellow
Hungarian-Americans who established any kind of contact with Hungary and with the Hungarian regime.
