On April 2nd, 2015 (Thursday), at 2 PM, Kronusz Publishing and the Hungarian Historical Society will host the premier of the first five volumes of the Sziluett (Silhouette) series at the Historical Archives of the Hungarian State Security. One of the books in this series of modern historical biographies is Gábor Ujváry’s “A European Type of Statesmen: Kuno Klebelsberg (1875-1932)", which Róbert Kerepeszki, adjunct professor at the University of Debrecen, will appraise.
