Hello Ley,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
ALTOFEN used to be one of the old German names for the town of Buda
which later became part of the city of Budapest.
Now TOTSCHEISE is a different ball game. It is very likely a bad
joke. The literal translation >from German would be "Slovak shit"
(pardon my French). It's the combination of the Hungarian derogatory
name for the Slovaks (Tot) plus the German word (Scheisse) meaning
excrement. No such town in my gazetteer.
