My grandparents came to the USA from Hungary via Germany. My grandpa was a German citizen living in Hungary and met my grandma there, they left Hungary when the Russians over ran it during WWII. The reason my grandpa moved to Hungary was due to WWI. They told me the population of Hungary was depleted from war and Hungary needed people to get its economy back. My grandpa was given FREE land! He had a small farm there. Easy come easy go via the fortunes of war.When ww ent to Budapest on our first trip we were told that lot of older people spoke German, more so in prior to the 80s. That makes sense since the Kingdom of Hungary was a part of Austro-Hungarian Empire ruled by Hapsburgs.
