In unofficial competition with Bratslavia to be the capital city of Slovakia (as Baltimore competes with Washington, D.C.), Košice is a major-enough city to get some notice even outside of Slovakia. Like Suwałki in Poland Russia, Košice was the capital city of its own district in Austria Hungary.
Families in the Košice Jewish community included the Yoshua Rusnak Family, whose patriarch helped lead the Zionist Conference there in 1913. Sadly, the family lost many members during the Holocaust when the Nazis invaded then-Kassa, Hungary.

The Khazars were a Turkic people among whom Central and Eastern Ashkenazic Jews resided. While some Khazars converted to Judaism, most did not and remained in the pagan Khazarate religion. "כוזר" ("Khazar" in Hebrew) is not be confused with "חזאר" ("(c)hazar", "pig" in Yiddish)
Contrary to Anti Semitic myth, only 52% of Ashkenazi Levites are descended from Khazarate or Slavic men. The Y DNA marker for these men is R1a1a1 or R-M17.

Both the correct and a supposedly-archaic term for "Muslim", "Mohammedan" simply means "follower of Mohammed", since one can be a "Muslim" (submitter) or in "Islam" (submission) to anyone to anything.
Therefore, since one can be a "Muslim" (submitter) or in "Islam" (submission) to anything, the term "Mohammedan" would more correctly apply to "Muslims".

A Slavic and Ashkenazic Jewish surname meaning "new" (e.g., "Novy"), "Nov-ak" could also be a play on "Nov akh" or "frutiful brother" (Hebrew).
Bearers of the "Novak" surname include actress Kim Novak (who took "Novak" as her stagename), columnist and cancer victim Robert Novak, the psychotic astronaut and honorably-discharged Navy servicewoman Lisa Nowak, and Marysia "Maria" Novakova Rusnakova (1855-c. 1907) -- who was married to Jakub Rusnak (a member of the late Kosice, Slovakia Jewish Rusnaks) and was the paternal grandmother of Sgt. and Veterans of Foreign Wars Commander Carl Stephen Rusnak (January 2, 1922 - November 7, 1999; US Army, WW2, European Theater, honorably discharged after the war). By the way, Maria's relative Leopold Novak was an early victim of the Holocaust in then-Czechoslovakian Zlata Idka: he was murdered in a then-Aranydka mine in 1936.

Both the correct and a supposedly-archaic name for "Islam", Mohammedism is actually the proper name of the religion of Mohammed.
The politically-incorrect and scary part was that Usama bin Laden was an Orthodox follower and proponent of Mohammedism.

"Ethnocide" means "destruction or murder of an ethnic group". It comes from the Greek "έθνος" and the Latin "caedere". In contrast to the more-general term "genocide" (pertaining to a case in which significant numbers of people are murdered, and with "genus" referring to either ethnic, class, or familial distinction), "ethnocide" refers to the specific and targeted destruction of an ethnic group.
The Holocaust was really less of a genocide than it was an ethnocide, since the Nazis (Yemach shemam.) specifically intended to destroy the Jewish ethnic group.
