Late January 2003 Announcement
Greetings TARG members. This is a page of special announcements that
were too late to make our last issue and cannot wait until the regular
February issue of the TARG Newsletter comes out next month.

ZDIAR'S FR. JAN IN U.S. NEXT WEEKEND_________
Carole Saloomey, our resident expert on Zdiar, Slovakia sent me this
message which cannot wait. Fr. Jan from Zdiar is in the USA visiting
relatives in New York. He will be visiting East Otis, MA January 31st thru
February 3rd. On Sunday February 2nd he will be celebrating the 11AM Mass in
Slovak at St. Peter's Church, 22 State St., Westfield, MA. A reception will
follow at the Parish Center. All are invited.
Adriana Bachledova, former manager of the Zdiar Folklore Group "Goral",
will also be in attendance at Fr. Jan's Mass. She will be in Goral folk
dress singing with the Choir. Afterward at the reception, she will sing some
Goral folk songs, play the violin & recorder and answer any questions you
might have. For more information on any of this, you can reach Carole by
e-mail at: User706317@aol.com. Thanks, Carole!
TARG WWII HISTORY BOOKS SIGNED BY AUTHOR________
Last time we discussed the new book "World War II: OSS Tragedy in
Slovakia," by Jim Downs. It is one of those books that is hard to put down
and has you saying over and over: "what an amazing movie this would make!"
Realizing much of the story happened within our TARG study area makes it
even that much more fascinating.
We now have a limited quantity of copies of the book especially
autographed by the author for TARG members! (Please see the TARG website at:
http://mytarg.net and click on "Available Books" for more details.) If you
wanted to know what the history of the German occupation was in our TARG
area between 1938 and 1945, this book is A MUST READ! Thanks, Jim!
