Munich (MTI) – President Janos Ader attended a commemoration of Hungary’s 1956 anti-Soviet revolt, held at the Hungarian consulate general in Munich on Thursday evening.

In his address, the president said that Hungarians in 1956 were fighting for a life in which “work would be meaningful and rewarded, individuals would have rights and live in freedom, and the nation would have an independent future equal to other nations”.

Hungarians’ hope “became a power shaping history, which later opened a way to reunite Europe”, he said.

The ceremony was attended by Joachim Herrmann, Bavaria’s interior minister.
