Some of the international students don’t observe the traditional Bratislava Blankface.
So,does this still happen today? I can see why back then. But are people still in that habit? I remember back my great grandmother came over in 1949 she seemed to always have a blank look about her. She only spoke Slovak and wore dark clothes and a babushka. Interesting. I was afraid of her but I was very young.She died in 1962.
Customs do not just start and stop in a generation or two. They persist. They become a way of thinking and being.
In Slovakia in 1949, it would have been a very good time to have a very blank, impassive, inscrutable face.
