VERITAS Debate Nights

03 February 2015

Réka Marchut, Research Assistant at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Centre for Social Sciences - Institute for Minority Studies, and László Orosz, Senior Research Fellow at the VERITAS Institute, analyzed a very exciting section of history in a debate moderated by Gábor Ujváry, Subject Team Leader of the VERITAS Institute’s Miklós Horthy Era Research Team,in Lotz Hall at the Budapest Business School.

Réka Marchut’s Töréspontok (Fault Lines) looks at how six ethnic German settlements near Budapest were punished following the war, while László Orosz’s soon-to-be-released book titled Tudomány és politika (Science and Politics) remembers the life and work of Fritz Valvajec, the one-time head of the Munich-based Südost-Institut and expert on Southeast Europe history.
