Sources and recommended readings

I would like to tell you that I owe lots of thanks to the following pages and people. I am just translating their precious work into English, all the praise should go to them.

Firstly, the most appreciated work is coming from the people who are running this page:

They have millions of pictures and wonderfully researched stories. 

Also, I could do nothing without the well-organized and prompt information coming from the FB page of Szibler Gábor and Szerecz Miklós:

I would like to express my gratitude to Suzanna Lahner King: her editing work was crucial to my writings.

I am grateful for the plentiful materials sent to me by my Croatian friend, Zed Zidar.

The blog of Denever Szabó has contributed enormously to my work, too:
