The People of Mezőkövesd in the Tide of World War II.
by Zoltán Babucs – György Szmetana
Babucs-Szmetana: Mezőkövesdiek a II. világháború viharábanIt was more then a life-time ago, that the peace of the Don got disturbed by the agony and scream of death, gunfire cracking and shelling. The horrors of war and the battle of captivity are the themes of this book and it is about the people of Mezőkövesd. The authors’ research work was much helped by the people’s photos and relics. The diaries of János Nyeste and József Gáspár, as additional sources, are giving records of the battles, marching, everyday life, starvation, freezing, the misery and brutality they had to suffer. The book closes with a list of untraceably people’ data. As for the printing, unfortunately there’s much room for improvement.
The book is available in Hungarian!
