Brain Drain in Ungarn – Menschen in der Region Baranya verlassen ihre Heimat massenhaft, auf der Suche nach anständig bezahlten Jobs und einem besseren Leben – und tragen mit ihren Geldsendungen maßgeblich zur Versorgung ihrer Angehörigen bei.
Hungary is witnessing a steady flow of emigrants. Admittedly, one could counter that it is incorrect to call those who seek work abroad emigrants because „to emigrate“ means „to leave one country or region to settle in another.“ One could argue that these people don’t plan to live abroad for good. However, there is a very good likelihood that people who spend a number of years in another country, establish a career for themselves, make new non-Hungarian friends, perhaps even marry local men or women will not return to their country of birth. A good example of that kind of emigration was the mass exodus of Hungarian citizens, especially from the Slovak-inhabited counties of northeastern Hungary, who left for the United States in the 1880s and 1890s in order to make enough money to return home and live in relative comfort.
