Founders of Global Slovakia, Zuzana Palovic and Gabriela Bereghazyova, will speak about their latest book, “Slovak Settlers,” with a book signing to follow.
Although the history of Slovakia is a history of migration, little is known about the legions of men, women, and children who dared to cross the ocean. One third of the nation left behind everything they knew in search of jobs, money, and hope.
This book brings together 44 voices; descendants of the original Slovak settlers from Canada, Argentina, Australia, and the U.S. They piece together a timeless tale of separation, loss, and yearning to reconnect with our roots. Find the book in our museum store or online.
