Dr. Oszkár Bárány

It has been three days since my family arrived in Prága; I am so thankful we were able to make it here without being caught. The Russian invasion of the Empire was swift, and when Budapest fell, we knew the Jews would be the first to suffer. I first heard the news that the cossacks were at the gates while I was busy with a patient. I was barely able to finish filling his cavity before I closed the office early and ran home to my wife and children.

We packed our bags that very afternoon and boarded the last train to Bécs. We made it as far as Győr before hearing that the Russians were in Ausztria as well, and we would have to disembark. How could the Russians do this? Such naked aggression hasn't been seen since the days of Napoleon, and from the East since the Mongols. If it's true that all of Europe has descended into war, I dread the pain that awaits us all.

From there we had to go by foot, hitching rides with carriages and spending nights in strangers' stables whenever we could. Luckily my wife Éva had a cousin in Pozsony, which thankfully had at the time been free from Russian attack. We stayed with her family for a few nights, happy to have warm beds and food again, but we knew we could not stay for long. The newspaper announced that Bécs had fallen, and it was only a matter of time before the army swung around to consolidate their gains.

With Éva's cousin and her family in tow, we all took a train to Brno, then a final train to Prága. A day after we arrived the government announced that, due to the invasion, all available coal has been recommissioned for the war effort, and civilian train travel is done for. We are so tired from our journey; I pray we are safe here, because, where else can we go? And do we even have the strength?

I write this sitting at a desk in a shelter set up by the Spanish Synagogue for refugees fleeing in from the south. There are about two dozen of us, mostly Austrians, but some Hungarians like us. The only one I know though is Ignác Róheim, a barber from across the Duna... but he's alone. I fear asking what has happened to the rest of his family. Mine at least all have beds and bread, though it's not sure for how much longer, as supplies are beginning to run low, and already the rabbi calls for rationing.

As winter has set in, we all huddle by the fireplace, hoping for a miracle.

Winter 1902

Spring 1903 deadline: January 18th, 10 PM eastern

I AM A SKELETON
WITH VERY HIGH
STANDARDS


Not that I should be butting in again, but my 1902 review is definitely marked by a burgeoning Western Triple alliance, most likely as a response to the initial cries of Juggernaut. But in lieu of a full analysis I'll just offer an old poem:

The Juggernauty posted:

'Twas Autumn, and the Turkish fleet
Did thorn and threaten in the Black:
An army in Armenia,
And Russia seemed under attack.

'Beware the Juggernaut, my friend!
The roll that steams, the plots that hatch!
Beware the pseudo war, and end
The devious center snatch!'

They took their rattled swords in hand:
Long time the battle fake they fought-
Unsurety plagued Hungary,
And the Archduke paused in thought.

And, as he paused with waffling thoughts,
The Juggernaut, to his great shame,
Came crashing through the Balkan dots,
And gobbled as it came!

Spring, Fall! Spring, Fall! And all to all
The Juggernaut just grew and grew!
The nations died in R-T tide:
The game, alas, was through.

But canst thou slay the Juggernaut?
Hark to my words, my I-A hearts!
Ally today, with no delay!
And stop it 'ere it starts.

'Twas Autumn, and the Turkish fleet
Did thorn and threaten in the Black:
An army in Armenia,
And Russia seemed under attack.

When I heard that an entire army in Serbia was disbanded, I was devastated. When I found out that was intended by the national government, I wept. The war was already lost; we would never be able to return to our homes again.
