Memory of Hungarians deported to Soviet labour camps honoured
Hungarians deported to forced labour camps in the Soviet Union in the aftermath of WWII were remembered at a ceremony in Budapest on Sunday.
The ceremony was held at a monument to the victims of the Gulag erected in Honvéd Square in central Budapest in 1993.
State secretary Bence Rétvári noted that one in twelve Hungarians had been impacted by the deportations to the labour camps in the Soviet Union.
Under a declaration by parliament made in 2012, November 25 is the Memorial Day of Hungarian Political Prisoners and Forced Labourers Transported to the Soviet Union.
