Siebenbürgen ohne Siebenbürger?
Transylvania without Transylvanians? Centralized State Integration and Political Regionalism after the First World War

Zentralstaatliche Integration und politischer Regionalismus nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg

At the end of the First World War, Transylvania was taken away from the Hungarian state and made part of ‘Greater Romania.’ The ensuing integration process generated numerous areas of conflict. Most Transylvanians felt treated as second-class citizens. 1928 saw an overwhelming electoral victory by the National Peasants’ Party, largely supported by Romanian Transylvanians, but this last hope for democracy failed in 1933.
