Greek colonies were founded, crumbled, then re-fortified by Roman ones – a rare example in the region of civilisation arriving from the West. Christianity put a spear in the hand of the Thracian horseman, a dragon beneath his hooves, and renamed him Saint George. The Romans built roads, and imposed some order on the landscape, then fell to the ‘barbarians’ in their own ranks. The Scythians and Sarmatians, Alans, Huns and Slavs rode their horses down the same route as Bronze Age invaders, from the steppes north of the Black Sea, down the narrow strip of land between the elbow of the Carpathians and the sea, then turned west when they hit the Danube.
The so-called journalist makes little secret of his sympathy for the protesters,’ reads one of my favourite entries, compiled by an informer standing beside me at the ferry crossing in Esztergom. On April Fool’s Day 1986 I was walking with friends through the Danube wetlands in Szigetköz in western Hungary when it started to rain. We did not realise that the gentle rains contained the first radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster one thousand kilometres further east. In 1991 Hungary withdrew unilaterally from the hydroelectric scheme, but the Slovaks pressed ahead with a project which they saw as a matter of national pride, regardless of the environmental damage it would cause.
I do not intend to romanticise the East. There are deep economic and structural problems, largely solved in the more fortunate west of the continent. Above all, there is a problem of story-telling. Large chunks of the recent past remain undigested. 16 But other tragedies have been less well documented, and, where told, rarely translated. There are the Roma, robbed of their music and their mobility by the communists, in exchange for a mattress in a workers’ hostel and a factory job, then robbed of their livelihoods by the onset of capitalism.
