Dear H-Sig,
I just posted a letter for translation in viewmate, but I have not
received viewmate link, yet. The letter comes >from the Mayor of Zatin
(Zeteny) Slovakia.=A0 My family visited this area where my Strauss family
originated, last Spring. The area was part of Hungary and now sits in
Southern Slovakia, about 10km >from Kralovsky Chlmec, near the Hungarian
Border.=A0 (Hungarian is still spoken in the community.)=A0 An article
about our visit was published in the Winter 2012 Issue of Avotaynu.=A0
This week we received this letter >from the Mayor with 50 pages of
images of the old Jewish Cemetery, many of the gravestones, and
townspeople cleaning the cemetery, which sits in a forested area, about
a mile >from the community. I assume the letter is in Hungarian but it
may be written in Slovak. I do not speak either language and would
appreciate if someone would provide a translation of the letter.=A0 If
anyone is also interested in copies of the photos, I plan to scan the
stack and make a pdf of the series.=A0 Please email me, and I will send
pdf.=A0 Thank you.
