I'm honest with you guys. If you ask 100 Hungarians you will get 100 answers. We have no identity, we have no own culture. 90% of our youth was raised by Hulk Hogan or Rambo. We're a culturally Americanized people with barely any knowledge about our roots or identity.

Most Hungarians I've met are pretty proud of being Hungarian. I would say Hungarians are a central european nation made up of mostly west Slavic / Germanic/ and balkanic influences. They suffer a bit from post empire syndrome and rejection from their surrounding neighbors. Many Hungarian people in the past came from a different ethnic background but gave up their identity for a greater Hungarian one. This can lead to a bit of schizophrenia in identify and confusion in society. I think the key is to learn as much about your history and embrace all of it. Hungary has a great and colorful history. Hungarians should be proud of it while not trying to tear down their neighbors.

Modern Hungary is a nationality mainly created by the linguistic difference of Magyars

and we all suffer from Americanization and 'made in China'.

"The greatest catastrophe to have befallen Hungary since the battle of Mohacs in 1526," the Treaty of Trianon in 1920, was extremely harsh on Hungary and unjustifiably one-sided. The resulting "treaty" cost Hungary an unprecedented 2/3 of her territory, and 1/2 of her total population or 1/3 of her ethnic-Hungarian population. Add to this the loss of all her seaports, up to 90% of her vast natural resources, industry, railways, and other infrastructure. Millions of Hungarians saw borders arbitrarily redrawn around them, without plebiscites, ignoring President Wilson's lofty goal of national self-determination. The absurd treaty ignored a millenia of nation building and age-old cultural affiliations, created arbitrary borders and new countries, and created millions of new minorities who today struggle for survival of the ethnic identity. Western powers, primarily Britain and France, refused to re-visit the disaster they created at Versailles and led us into another great war. Two of the three newly created countries carved out of Hungarian territory no longer exist. The "Slovakia" (formerly Upper Hungary) part of Czechoslovakia split with the Czech Republic while "Yugoslavia" suffered from tragic civil war and the ravages of ethnic cleansing.

The ancestors of the Romanians first appeared in the high mountains of South-Transylvania towards the end of the eleventh century. They were shepherds who migrated in from Wallachia and lived in scattered settlements in the mountains. They were distinguished from the roman Catholic Hungarians and Saxons by belonging to the Greek Orthodox religion. Towards the end of the fifteenth century, Transylvania had a population of about 800,000, of whom 65% were Hungarians, the rest split evenly between Saxons and Romanians.

"The phrase "Hungarians of Slovakia" or, the one used earlier, "Hungarians of Czechoslovakia" is a notion and a reality of the twentieth century. Prior to 1918, the segment of the Hungarian nation now inhabiting Slovakia has been in its ancestral homeland for more than a thousand years. This population did not leave their native land, but rather had an imposed border change, sealed against their will at the Treaty of Trianon, 1920 (http://www.hunsor.se/dosszie/the_treaty_of1920.pdf) and the Treaty of Paris in 1947. At the time of the first border modification in 1919 the Hungarian population of today's Slovakia was 693,000 representing 23,5% of the total population of the country. In 1991, the Hungarian speaking population of Slovakia was 608,000, representing a 11,2% of the total population.

From 896 right up to the end of the First World War the Baranya
Triangle was part of the historic Kingdom of Hungary. Its very name shows that it
had formed part of Baranya County - most of which still exists under that name
just across the border in Hungary. Much of Hungary (including all of Baranya
County), however, had the unfortunate experience of being under Turkish
occupation during the 16th and 17th centuries. The brutal nature of this
occupation led to an extreme depopulation of the countryside, a depopulation that
after the liberation from the Turks was remedied by massive immigration of
people from allover the Habsburg dominions. This resulted in ethnically mixed
regions, particularly in the south of Hungary, a situation that marks the area to this
day.

The 1945 Potsdam conference approved the Czechoslovak government request for the deportation of the Sudeten German population to Germany but did not approve their plan for the deportation of Hungarians to Hungary. While the Czech and Slovak ethnic cleansing of Hungarians was rebuffed at Potsdam, the Prague government initiated negotiations with Soviet-occupied Hungary, with Soviet-Russian assistance, for an exchange of population. During 1947 and 1948, according to official lists, 76,616 Hungarians were forcibly taken to Hungary in boxcars; these Hungarians were generally well-to-do businessmen, tradesmen, farmers and intellectuals. At the same time, 60,257, mostly poverty-stricken Slovaks volunteered to move to Czechoslovakia. In 1945, roughly 10,000 Hungarians escaped to Hungary to avoid Czech and Slovak persecution and an additional 39,000 were ordered to leave Czechoslovakia.

At the begining Hungarians were the same people with Turks. The difference is that Hungarians migrated in Europe, they mixed with local populations and embraced Christianity. Turks migrated in Asia Minor, they mixed with local populations and embraced Islam.
