Diego Moreno Galilea : The Regional Press as Documentary Heritage: the Construction of the Autonomous Community of La Rioja through Nueva Rioja

The study of the press as an educational tool is essential to achieve a greater capacity for learning and understanding. Using the press as a documentary source is a tool with great application capabilities to disseminate heritage and make known elements of the society of each era, such as clothing, fashions, tastes, customs or ideologies.

Among the multiple forms of analysis that can be worked with the press, we can consider the regional question, especially in specific cases in which the development of democracy and regional autonomy had a great propaganda loudspeaker through the press.

The Nueva Rioja newspaper allows us to learn about the progress and development of the Rioja autonomic process, a small Spanish province that knew how to assert itself by mobilizing the population and using the press as the cause of jokes and popular demands.

Thus, in this communication we will try to bring the vision of the regional press closer to the analysis of a historical event such as the construction of the Autonomous Community of La Rioja, which involved the development of towns and people who never thought of reaching levels of freedom and independence stories that would allow them to self-govern.

Sonja Tanhua : History of Gramota-archive and its Meanings for Skolt Saami Community and Saami Selfgovernance

In my paper I will study gramota-archives history from 16th to 18th century. I will also discuss their meaning for Skolt Saami community and its selfgovernance in the past. And what kind of meanings Skolt Saamis and Saami community (and researchers )in broad sense give them today.
The Suonjel sijd archive is part of UNESCO Memory of the World list. The documents are official documents issued by the Russian Emperor, tsars. These gramota documents confirmed the rights of the Skolt Saami community to their fishing and reindeer herding territories for a centuries. They also determined the responsibilities of the authorities toward Skolt Saamis.
Oldest is from 1605 and youngest from 1755. Finnish researcher J.J.Mikkola has copied and translated this archive material in 1942 and it has been published as a book. Mikkola also translated gramota from 1517 to his book. He made his translation from a danish/norwegian copy that has been made probably some where betwee 1600-1700. Norwegian governon Hans Hansen Lilienskiold has used this copy or original version in his book Speculum Boreale 1700 that describes people, nature and history of Finnmark and its neighbouring areas (including Skolt Saami areas, siidas).
In my research I will study archive material, but also make interviews with Skolt Saami community members and Saami scholars to find out what meaning these gramotas has for them in 2020s. (Show less)

65 years after the Hungarian revolution of 1956 we can get new details about it from the documents held in the Ukrainian archives. The KGB documents held in the State Archive of the Security Service of Ukraine and the State Archive of Transcarpathian Oblast give evidence about the deportation of Hungarian revolutionists to the Soviet Union. More than one thousand people were held in the prison of Ukraine, in Transcarpathia region from December 1956 to January 1957.
From the political perspective Transcarpathia and its population had two main roles: on the one hand, the location served as a military terrain for the fights in Hungary. While on the other hand, the Soviet leadership often needed the help of the local Hungarian population for interpretation.
he Soviet political leadership, that led the crushing of the revolution, settled in Uzhgorod. There was even a military telephone exchange centre for the direct connection to Moscow and to Budapest. The Committee for State Security (KGB) leaders, and high-ranking officers delegated from Moscow to Transcarpathia constantly informed the Soviet Union Communist Party’s Central Committee and Secretariat. Even the Deputy Interior Minister, M. Holdkov arrived to Uzhgorod.
The so-called Kádár’s speech from Szolnok, Hungary which was the call of the Hungarian Revolutionary Working-Peasant Government to the Hungarian people, was also transmitted from Uzhgorod, Ukraine.
According to current facts, the Transcarpathian events of 1956 resorted to the Hungarian ethnicity’s actions and movements. Despite the fact that the majority of the Transcarpathian events were symbolic expression of solidarity, the currently processed archived documents revealed, that a sum of 46 people faced judiciary procedure. From which 18 were found guilty, and spent a total amount of 24 years in prison, eight more were expelled from university, and one person, Endre Geche, a protestant pastor, were killed during the interrogation.
Lots of data prove that members of the Hungarian State Security Authority escaped to Transcarpathia in the days of the revolution and some leaders as well. Among others: András Szobek, former minister of ingathering, János Matolcsi, former minister of agriculture, Oszkár Bethlen, the former editor of Szabad Nép (Free Folk), István Csáki, the former head of the MDP party school in Szolnok county, and the former deputy secretary of the Szolnok county MDP party committee, Dr. László Háy, the former chairman of the Hungarian National Bank, Zoltán Fodor, the head of the Department of International Affairs of the Hungarian Labour Party, and many others. The officers who stayed in Transcarpathia, took part in the interrogations of the Hungarians deported in 1956, in the prison of Uzhgorod. Among them was Gyorgy Vegh form Nyíregyhaza, the Head of the Department Hungarian State Security Authority. (Show less)
