On the occasion of the memorial year commemorating Hungarian political prisoners and forced laborers deported to the Soviet Union, a traveling exhibition titled Hungarians in the Camps of the Soviet Union – 1944-1956 has opened. The next stop will be in Székelyudvarhely (Odorheiu Secuiesc, RO).
Following the war, the Hungarians of Romania were doubly walloped: not only were they initially put under the authority of the Maniu Guard, later to have their civil rights violated by the Romanian state, they also had to contend with the abuses of occupying Soviet forces and the deportation of many of their compatriots to GULAG and GUPVI camps.
Dávid Kiss will be representing the VERITAS Institute at the opening of the exhibition.
Location: Székelyudvarhely Mayor’s Office, Városháza tér (Square) 5, Székelyudvarhely (Odorheiu Secuiesc, RO)
Date: 5 PM on (Thursday) December 8th, 2016
