The Day of National Belonging
A commemoration on the 99th anniversary of signing the Peace Treaty dictates of Trianon (Versailles) at the statue of Hungaran Grief on June 04, 2019.
In his commemorative address, Mr. László Papp, mayor of Debrecen said among other things: We Hungarians, commemorate the most unjust and both spiritually and in numbers of population the most devastating event in our nation’s history. Nearly a hundred years ago, we were the most harshly punished of all on the losers’ side as a member of the Central Powers. This injury of the Trianon (Versailles) Peace Treaty is the reason why this unfair dismembermemt of the country has remained a raw and sore wound in the Hungarian psyche to this day.
