Dr. Hugo Portisch: childhood memories of Bratislava in the 1930s and 1940s. This video has been produced by the EU project baum in February 2021. Mr. Portisch, born in Bratislava and a famous Austrian journalist , shares some very personal memories with us that will leave you with fascination. His father Emil Portisch was by the way the last chief editor of the liberal daily newspaper Pressburger Zeitung.

“Really beautiful, breathtaking” was the statement of a participant of last week´s baum-conference, where the video was presented to the public. So sit back and take your time for this historical document. Many thanks to Mr. Portisch for these highly interesting insights into the past – and also for some hints for the future, wait until the end!
