[EN] My village, translated by Elena Costea

Înapoi la La Bobota

(RO: Satul meu)

Wherever we shall be brought by the vicissitudes of life, the native village could never be forgotten. You can not forget the streets of the childhood, the beloved persons and also you can not forget the stories told by the old men of the village.

In the same way, Corneliu Coposu could not have forgotten his native village, Bobota, even if the vicissitudes of life have brought him on other paths, following him in order to bear his cross of his destiny which was so hard and so hardened. He could not have forgotten the church founded by the archpriest, his great-grandfather the Greek catholic Gavril Vaida and by his father, the Greek-catholic archpriest Valentin Coposu. In this church, which was a real cathedral Mr. Coposu was baptized and here his father has serviced for 32 years by the time of the horrible dictatorship from Vienna, and also here, in the court of the church, 6 members of his family are resting.

Starting with his prodigious career as journalist, at the ‘Romania Noua’s newspaper from Claus, managed by Zaharia Boila Corneliu Coposu was believed to be a great talented and lively writer as the great academician and his good friend Gabriel Tepea underlined.

From the hundreds published articles, what has impressed us much, in a special way, are the beautiful lines written by Corneliu Coposu about his native village Bobota. They prove his true feelings about the places and about the people of his native places, written with a special talent and we think that this talent places him between the great writers who have evoked with gentleness their native village, and for this sort of literature Ion Creanga was well-known.

What is significant here is the article ‘In my village’, published at the anniversary of Revival of Jesus Christ in 1941, taking also into account the bad conditions with which Coposu family was being confronted.

The year 1940 has represented the first great earthquake for Coposu family. After the treaty of Vienna from 30 august, his father was signed as in 1919 on the black paper of the Hungarian troupes because he was one of the subscribers of great unification from the first December, 1941. In the day before the coming of the hortyst tropes in Bobota all the family has taken refuge in Copolariu near Alba-Iulia where Valentin Coposu has serviced only a year before his death at the age of 54 years as a result of a infarct. In his testament, he expressed his desire to be buried in the court of the church of Bobota after the Ardeal would have been free.

The day of revival the sad atmosphere of Bobota and Copolariu, are wonderfully presented by Corneliu Coposu in this article, and that is why we reproduce it below.
