The Trauma of Trianon (and Hungary)

“Get over it.” That’s the usual answer across the globe if a Hungarian mentions the Trianon Treaty in a discussion. Today, June 4th, 2020, is the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Trianon Treaty. And we, Hungarians cannot “get over it”—and I’d like to explain why.

It is true that “it was long time ago” and happened in a place far away. It is also just one historical fact among many, and the usual suggestion—typically from Britons—is to simply “get over it” because, as they tell us, “we, too, lost our Empire.”
This indirect reference to the former Austro-Hungarian or Habsburg Empire overlooks and ignores the historic Hungary, which was practically identical with the Carpathian Basin. In fact, it wasn’t an empire at all.
So, to lose, under the Trianon Treaty, Transylvania, later Slovakia, and roughly two-thirds of our country, wasn’t like losing India for the Britons. It was more like losing Manchester and Liverpool, both integral parts of the English homeland.

Get over it, its a past. In 10 th century was there Great Moravia - Slavs empire until hungarians came and took over. This is the trauma of Slavic people and Romanians too...

@Roberto 55 , Great Moravia was taken over ONLY by the Hungarians. Hungary was taken over by the REST OF THE WORLD.
A nuisance of difference about the rate of powers, I hope you agree.

Romanians are nothing common with Hungarian lands by Divine Law, however they came from the Balkans on Hungarian Transylvania from the beginning of the 14th Century (after the great Mongolian invasion). Romanians are living in the psychosis of the conceptional lie of the French frankmasonry, the so called daco-romanian continuity theory, which is nothing to do with the reality of historical facts!
