Letter written by Alexandre Millerand, President of the Paris Peace Conference and addressed to the head of the Hungarian delegation, Albert Apponzi, (the 6th of May 1920)

‘(…) the will of the peoples was expressed on the days of October and November 1918, when the dual monarchy collapsed and the long oppressed populations joined their brothers, Italians, Romanians, Yugoslavs and Czechoslovaks. The developments since that date stand for as much new evidence of the feelings of the nations formerly subjects of St. Stephen’s Crown. The belated measures taken by the Hungarian Government to give satisfaction to the nations’ aspirations to autonomy cannot create illusions; they do not change at all the essential historical truth that, during many years, the entire drive of the Hungarian policies strived to muffle the voice of the nations’.
