The losses would have been even more serious but for the Russian army's rapid advance to the capital and the fact that Budapest Jews, herded into a fenced ghetto area, could not by then be taken away.

Whereas almost everywhere else in Eastern Europe German settlers maintained their separation, in Budapest they allowed themselves to be merged with the Magyar majority. They became bilingual, and excelled as patriotic Hungarian writers or politicians, in the spirit of the 1896 celebrations of Hungary's 1,000-year-old nationhood. For this occasion the ageing Emperor of Austria and Hungarian King, Franz Joseph, arrived from Vienna dressed in Hungarian hussar uniform. There were military parades, street parties, ox-roasting on the open fields beneath the Castle walls, and a grand Millennium fair was built in the newly enlarged City Park, complete with a full-sized replica of a mediaeval Transylvanian Castle and of the Gothic country church of Ják.
