South Tyrol provides hope

Regarding the Opinion page article "South Tyrol's Example," July 1: After 72 years the South Tyroleans will be able, hopefully, to live like South Tyroleans in their beloved mountains.

I wish the United Nations would have done, or would do now, something similar for the victimized Hungarians in Transylvania. In 1918 they were given to Romania against their will just like the South Tyroleans were given to Italy and the Croations to the quickly created Yugoslavia. They not only see their old towns and villages renamed, but even their family names altered - romanized in history books, documents, even old markers in the cemetaries. The harassment goes on and still Congress is considering a ccording most favored nation status to Romania. Dora N. Horchler, Philadelphia
