VERITAS Research Institute for History and Archives

A conference on the lead-up to the Treaty of Trianon and its post-implementation consequences

04 June 2015

On Thursday, June 4th, at 10 AM, the VERITAS Research Institute for History and Emlékpont (the Point of Remembrance) will mutually host a conference on the lead-up to the Treaty of Trianon and its post-implementation consequences in Hódmezővásárhely.

The speakers and guests of the symposium will be welcomed by Endre Marinovich, Deputy Director at VERITAS, and Péter Miklós, the Point of Remembrance Institution’s Director. In his presentation titled Unavoidable Catastrophe? Tamás Révész, VERITAS Research Assistant, will open the conference with a consideration of the chances an armed Hungarian resistance would have had against the victorious countries. László Gulyás, an associate professor at the University of Szeged, will analyze Albert Apponyi’s speech made at the Paris peace conference on January 16th, 1920, from the Hungarian revisionist movement’s theoretical foundational perspective. Gábor Hollósi then will discuss the Treaty of Trianon’s Geneva protocol no. 2. The VERITAS Senior Research Fellow will share an interesting story about the Macskalyuk mines near Somoskő. Through the personal intervention of a Hungarian investor and otolaryngologist, Géza Krepuska, the case of communities and mines that had been awarded to Czechoslovakia was reexamined, and in February 1924, the towns of Somoskőújfalu and Somoskő, as well as the nearby mines, with the exception of the Macskalyuk ones, were returned to Hungary.
