I never understood why my parents left Hungary
Jozef Bielik was born in Nová Vieska in 1949 as one of four children. His family belonged to southside Slovaks. My parents immigrated to Slovakia in 1948 from Pilišská Čaba, Hungary. Jozef did not finish high school. He did not complete military service. He worked in the Yugoslav pulp and paper mills in Štúrovo, later as a ČSAD driver. He never joined the party. He married in 1971 and has three children. He is a cynologist and hunter, the owner of a farm focused on breeding deer and pigeons.
