VERITAS Research Institute for History and Archives

15 November 2018

The (Visegrád) V4 Architectural Foundation and the VERITAS Research Institute for History jointly host our colleague Gábor Ujváry’s lecture Kuno Klebelsberg and István Bethlen.

Prime Minister István Bethlen and Minister of Religion and Education Kuno Klebelsberg are the two men most responsible for the political and economic consolidation (Bethlen) and the cultural institutional reorganization (Klebelsberg) that Hungary underwent in the 1920’s. Conservative and reform-minded, both Bethlen and Klebelsberg anticipated cultural policy playing a key role in the rebuilding of Hungary. They are a rare example in 20th-century Hungarian history of two genuine statesmen cooperating and working well together for the greater good.  

The event is free to the public, but registration is required due to limited space. You may register at the following address:

Location: Klebelsberg Castle, Templom utca (Street) 12–14, Budapest

Date: 6:30 PM on (Thursday) November 15th, 2018
