The VERITAS Institute’s introduction in Pécs

22 April 2015

On April 22 (Wednesday), 2015, at 5 PM the University of Pécs’s Institute of History of the Faculty of Humanities and the VERITAS Institute will host mutually the first regional VERITAS Debate Night in Pécs at the Southern Transdanubia Regional Library and Knowledge Center. This will be the first time that our Institute hosts an event outside of Budapest. As part of the program, Sándor Szakály, VERITAS Director, will discuss the responsibilities, research themes and principles of the Institute, which will be followed by a roundtable discussion titled “Bálint Hóman – The Scholar and Politician”.

The discussion will be led by the head of the Horthy Era’s research team, Gábor Ujváry, who has been recognized as an expert on Hóman’s life; Ujváry had written the report on which the Metropolitan Tribunal, on March 6, 2015, based its decision to exonerate Hóman, the late Minister of Culture, of any wartime wrongdoing.
