The arc of historical events setting out form Debrecen through Sopron all the way to Berlin
Opening the borders from the perspective of 30 years: the arc of events from Debrecen through Sopron all the way to Berlin was the title of the ceremonial event held by the German cultural forum and the Hungarian Pro-Youths of Germany Association on October 03, 2019.
At this event, Mr. László Papp, mayor of Debrecen, made a complimentary speech in the German language. If a nation knows what it feels like having family members and relatives separated by a border, the Hungarians do know it. This provides the historical grounds to why, we Hungarians, consider German unification one of the most outstanding events of the 20th century. We can celebrate the day of German Unity together in the awareness that we can claim a chip of the German achievement attained ever since and, vice versa, the Germans can share in our successes. Mr. László Papp, finally expressed his wish that mutual respect and friendship will prevail forever more between the two nations.
