Poznanie Knowledge Dear friends,
This web project was established sometimes around June 1997 and was dedicated to the book - The History of Slovakia and the Slovaks by Milan S.Durica-historian and Catholic priest who has the strong sympathy with clero-fascist Slovak State(1939-45) This publication was accidentally published with financial support from the European Union "Phare" and has come under heavy criticism from Jewish Community in Slovakia, Jews around the world and many historians. The History of Slovakia and Slovaks has been distributed as a handbook for history lessons in slovak schools. The book contains many factual errors and mistakes and has all the typical signs of xenophobia armed against the Czechs, Hungarians and of course Jews. The government of the prime minister Meciar ignored the requests from EU to withdraw Durica's publication from slovak schools even they promised to do so.

It's December 1998. However, this publication is still in school libraries as the instruction book for history teachers. We hope that a new slovak government does consider the book as historically incorrect.

Feel free to surf around. If you like our project please leave your comment in our Guest Book or add our banner to your site.
