This text is very biased by the magyar/hungarian point of view.The article is about "assimilation" of Hungarians by Slovaks, but only looks at the time between and after the WWs.On the other hand, Hungarians/Magyars tried to assimilate the Slovak (and other Slavic) nation since they came to Europe 1000 years ago. Before WW1, Slovaks were subject to magyarization - the process of converting Slovaks to Hungarians (often by violence).During WW2, Hungarians/Magyars occupied the southern parts of Slovakia and commited many crimes against Slovak people living there. After WW2, Czechoslovakia deported Magyars, who, in fact, were occupants of Slovakia/Czechoslovakia. It was a logical consequence of the occupation, but this article is written like the occupation never was. 1. The assimilation by Hungarians is treated on Magyarization. Nobody says that some Hungarians didn't commit any war crimes or didn't try to assimilate other peoples (you can't say actually that "Hungarians tried to assim...
Moved this discussion from my personal discussion page: So far you really brought no arguments except "You cannot deny, that part of Hungarians in Slovakia are the result of magyarisation". Thats quite absurd given the long time passed since magyarisation but let's assume for a minute that you are right. Should we then add Slovakization to every possible article about Slovakia, Slovaks, Slovak language? as "You cannot deny, that part of Slovaks are the result of slovakization as they are Slovakized Germans, Rusyns, Hungarians, Jews and others". Can you deny that the percantage of Hungarians due to mass deportations, brutal oppression and rutheless slovakization went from 30% in 1910 to 10% today? I don't think that slovakization should be added to every article just because "some of the Slovaks are result of Slovakization" to use your words. Hobartimus (talk) 19:37, 23 December 2007 (UTC) These numbers 30% to 10% are very misleading. I will quite from : "Between 1850 and 1910 the et...
Every year, the Hungarian government provides a status report on Hungarians living outside of Hungary, and includes some historical basis. It would be an excellent reference for this article, and for other articles on Hungarian minorities. I read the year-2004 version that was available in 2005 (English translation), and noted that there were documents for other years. I assume that there are now more current versions. I lost the link, and came here hoping to find it, without success. Searching the Hungarian government's website would not be easy for one who doesn't speak the language, so I'm hoping that someone more capable than myself will take the initiative to look it up (and will be able to use it as a reference in the main article). I can then come to the main article and find the link. Some additional information: it discusses the Hungarian minorities in states bordering Hungary in separate documents, and then has another separate document that covers all others (in the US, C...
I removed the "gerrymandering" part. It claims, that there were 2 regions (of 17 total) with hungarian majority before 1996 and none after. This is, however, nonsense, as there were no regions recognised before 1996. Last time, when Slovakia had 17 regions, was in the 13th century. See http://www.infostat.sk/vdc/pdf/slavikdoc.pdf- for people who don't speak slovak, it is the table 1 (tabulka 1), the slovak word for "region" is "kraj", plural "kraje", table columns macro-regions ("makroregiony") and mezo-regions ("mezoregiony") The claim was challenged since august 2008 and nobody backed it up with a reference since then. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:01, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I am shocked after reading this article. Not only has this article - obviously - not been edited by any local Slovak or Hungarian having the slightest idea of the topic, but also it would be considered an article written by (at best) the Jobbik in Hungary. Even if I close all my eyes, I can only recommend everybody not to believe any single word of the text. Thank you. Szabó2 (talk) 23:59, 3 September 2009 (UTC) I am shocked too. Not only has this article - obviously - edited by experts of this issue, but it is obviously totally underpinned by data. I can only recommend everybody TO BELIEVE every single word of the text. In Europe, everybody, I repeat EVERYBODY commited crimes, motivated by nationalism. There was no difference between good and bad nationalism. It's high time, that finally everyone, even Slovakia faced the darker side of its past. The capability of admitting that we were wrong - that's a sign of the adulthood. See also magyarization! Thank You!--Ltbuni (talk) 18:19,...
I express serious concerns about objectivity of this article. According to my knowledge it contains false arguments and misinterpretations. I request flagging this article as an article with disputed objectivity.--Eminencia (talk) 11:00, 8 June 2010 (UTC) "It contains false info" Where? Any arguments? --Ltbuni (talk) 18:22, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
The articles presents as fact that most Hungarians in Slovakia are bilingual with Slovak because of Slovak language laws (I'm not sure if the person writing this therefore resents the laws or thinks they are good for that reason). I suspect the language laws are not the prime reason for bilingualism, merely that if someone wants success in careers, a full-choice of serivces (including privately supplied ones), and to be able to follow the politics of the state they live in then they want to learn the state language. I'm going to take it out in the future, so if anyone wants to keep it, it would be useful to post in this discussion a comparison with other minorities of around 10 percent in relatively small countries, but without the language laws, or to compare the situation now with the situation before the language laws. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:11, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
This article has been written from a very close-minded point of view. Quite obviously, the author has no idea about the situation and/or is intentionally trying to promote misinformation, fallacy and demagogy. I absolutely agree with opinion above (Eminencia). This article should be flagged. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:10, 1 April 2011 (UTC) This article has NOT been written from a very close-minded point of view.

No one has added any source for the material below that has been included in this article. It has been like that for over five months. Why should it be left in there if no one has been able to produce any proof at all? It should remain removed from the article until a reliable source is found. Five months has been long enough to wait for someone to add a source. I have a feeling Hungarian nationalists won't like this but that material should not be in the article. This is the material that has been unsourced for over five months: >Slovaks leaving Hungary moved voluntarily, but Czechoslovakia forced Hungarians out of their nation. >After expulsion of the Germans, Czechoslovakia found it had a labor shortage, especially of farmers in the Sudetenland. As a result, the Czechoslovak government deported more than 44,129 Hungarians from Slovakia to the Sudetenland between 1945 and 1947. Some 2,489 were resettled voluntarily and received houses, good pay an...
After looking over the 1920/21 and 1930/31 census data for the other areas of concentrated Hungarian minorities outside of Hungary--the census data of Hungarians in Transylvania in Romania, in Vojvodina in Serbia, and in Transcarpathia, Czechoslovakia, the number of Hungarians in Slovakia as of 1930 seems skewed, given their number as of 1921. In Vojvodina, the Hungarian population increased from 363,450 in 1921 to 376,176 in 1931 or by 3.50% In Transylvania, the Hungarian population increased from 1,305,753 in 1920 to 1,349,563 in 1930 or an increase of 3.36%. And in Transcarpathia, the Hungarian population increased from 111,052 in 1921 to 116,548 in 1930 or by 4.95%. In Slovakia by contrast, the Hungarian population decreased from 650,597 in 1921 to 585,434 in 1930, a decrease of 10.02%. Three of the four above regions seem to show a growth rate of the Hungarian population at about 3.5% between 1921-1931 (or 3.15% for 1921-1930). Based on that, one would have expected around 670,...
About 2.2 million Hungarians live in areas that were part of the Kingdom of Hungary before the Treaty of Trianon in 1920 and are now parts of Hungary's seven neighbouring countries, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, and Austria.

As part of the Holocaust in Slovakia, 75,000 Jews out of 80,000 who remained on Slovak territory after Hungary had seized southern regions were deported and taken to German death camps.   Thousands of Jews, Gypsies and other politically undesirable people remained in Slovak forced labor camps in Sereď , Vyhne, and Nováky.
