The Vision of Reality in Habaj’s Kolonisti

  • Karel Brušák
Part of the Studies in Russia and East Europe book series (SREE)


Ivan Habaj’s Kolonisti1 deals with the experience of several Slovak families who came to farm in the plain known as the Rye Island, south-east of Bratislava between the Little Danube and the Danube, when this region was ceded to the newly established Czechoslovakia from Hungary after World War I. After the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia by the Munich Agreement in 1938, the Rye Island was restored to Hungary and the ‘colonists’ had to move to the new Slovak Republic. In 1945, when the region was restored to Czechoslovakia, they were able to come back, but only some of them did so.
