were sent by the #Empire as settlers & have been living isolated, hundreds of km from the border with #Hungary proper, maintaining their language, identity, surrounded by a majority of #Romanians. The choice of the location matters as the audience lives there (star)/2
in beautiful surroundings. #Hungary has been supporting this minority investing in #agriculture #schools loans, building new sports arenas while the #Romanian government has been tolerant of this encroachment on sovereignty to maintain #social #peace good relations /3
