Unclear meaning[edit]

Some of this text did not employ very good English. I corrected the typos and improved the English where the meaning was transparent. However, I found the following incomprehensible

It was followed by break until May 1947. Last some 3,000 people returned after Stalin's death, during 1953-1955. Hungarian sources estimate that 330,000-380,000 persons returned in total, giving an estimate of about 200,000 perished in transit and in captivity.

Do you mean to say "There was a lull in returns until May 1947. The last to come back were some 3,000 people, returned after Stalin's death, during 1953-1955. Hungarian sources estimate that 330,000-380,000 persons returned in total, giving an estimate of about 200,000 for those who perished in transit and in captivity".?

Mikkalai[edit]

Mikkalai, would you care to explain why you keep reverting my separation of references and footnotes? See Wikipedia:Edit_summaries#Recommendations, WP:Edit warring as well as Wikipedia:Etiquette, for reason why you ought to explain yourself in edit summaries when reverting content. You're also on the verge of breaching WP:3RR. Merging the footnotes and references section is ugly and confusing. Please read Wikipedia:Footnotes#Style_recommendations, Wikipedia:Citing_sources#Section_headings and Wikipedia:MoS#Section_management for the relevant guidelines. I'm restoring this version.

I see you have made an approach to fixing this while I was posting. Thanks, Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 17:36, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
