to switch over partially or even completely to English as the younger generations begin to lose the knowledge of their ethnic language. This has been especially true of groups such as the Slovenes, who have not been radicalized in any political sense. Nevertheless, the Slovene press in the United States still continues to this day. The ethnic press, including that of the Slovene Americans, no longer holds the prominent position in social and political movements that it did in the period between 1895 and 1924, but the "renewed migration after World War II and ethnic revival, triggered by the Civil Rights movement and the drive for recognition of ethnic diversity," have helped to buy still more time for such small ethnic groups as the Slovenes in America. 2
Even after the Slovene-American press has ceased to exist, which it some day undoubtedly will, one will be able to say that in its long life it has left a meaningful mark on history--the history of America, the history of the land of Slovenia, and the history of the Slovenes in America and their descendants.
