Named in memory of Ludovit Velislav Stur (18151856), ideologist and organizer of the Slovak national-liberation movement, codifier of the Slovak literary language, linguist, philosopher, historian, writer, poet, journalist, educationalist and editor. Stur was also an enthusiastic promoter of Czecho-Slovak contacts, Slavonic solidarity and human coexistence with high respect for democracy. An active authority during the 1848-1849 revolution, he led the revival from the oppression of a millenium that almost caused the Slovaks to lose their identity. (M 13608)
