Based on the historical circumstances and a primary research of the German press in Bratislava the project identifies the reasons for the breaking point in the issue of the Bratislava Germans self determination from the so-called "Deutschungarn" (i.e. German Hungarians as members of the Hungarian Kingdom nation ) to true Germans ( called "germanspeeched" Bratislava inhabitants ).
