Budapest, October 10 (MTI) – The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe opened a Polish-Hungarian exhibition on Monday dedicated to the memory of the heroes of Hungary’s anti-Soviet 1956 revolution.
After attending the opening in Strasbourg, head of the Hungarian Parliament’s foreign affairs committee Zsolt Németh told MTI by phone that the sacrifices made in blood by the victims of revolutions and communist systems had not been in vain, given the victory of the democratic transition in 1989.
Titled “Executed cities. Poznan – Budapest 1956”, the exhibition was opened on the first day of the Assembly’s week-long session. Nemeth said at the event’s opening that Europe had “a totalitarian past which it must face up to.”
