Slovak Jewish communities rejected Wednesday what they called efforts by Slovak nationalists to glorify a controversial pre-World War II leader. The Slovak parliament is debating a proposal by the nationalist Slovak National Party to honor Andrej Hlinka, a catholic priest and leader of the Slovak People's Party before the war, for his contribution to the creation of the independent Slovak state. The vote is expected later this month.
