Nograd Jewish Community and Shoah Victims #hungary #holocaust #slovakia
Andras Hirschler found this resource, which may be useful to those who had family from Nograd megye, Hungary, which was in the northern part of pre-Trianon Hungary just north of Pest-Pilis-Solt-Kiskun. The area is now divided between Hungary and Slovakia. Balassagyarmat was the county seat and Losonc, now Lucenec, Slovakia, was one of the largest cities. (See attached Goncy map from about 1910.)
The article includes a short history of the Jewish community in each place in the county and a list of names and family members of Holocaust victims.

This reminded me of a different volume with lots of information on the Jewish community of Balassagyarmat, also including many victims' names. It seems to be published by the Nógrád County Archives and a related historical society. It is searchable, and if you copy and paste text into Google Translate, non-Hungarian readers can get a good sense of any section.
The same historical group has published at least three other works, covering different time periods and information in the area.
