At 9:30 AM on Saturday, October 31st, 2015, the Research Institute for National Strategy, the VERITAS Research Institute for History and the Dr. Nándor Urmánczy Association will organize a conference in Maroshévíz (Toplița, RO) on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the death of Nándor Urmánczy, Member of Parliament.
Marxist and post-Marxist historians have tried to distort the facts about the role that Nándor Urmánczy played in the Hungarian political process. Urmánczy was there for every major turning point in 20th-century Hungarian history. He was an eyewitness to the nation entering the war, to the age of revolutions and to the military occupations. Upon the signing of the Treaty of Trianon, Urmánczy became the leading figure of the Ereklyés Országzászló Mozgalom, the most important group among all of the social movements clamoring for revision. His actions and workload knew no bounds. So it is important and necessary to study his roles as both a public figure and Member of Parliament, where he sat for sixteen years.
The conference has invited historians of the highest professionalism to speak, among whom we find two of VERITAS’ Senior Research Fellows, László Orosz and András Joó.
Jenő Szász, the President of the Research Institute for National Strategy, and Dr. István Gortvay, Nándor Urmánczy’s grandson, will be the patrons of the conference.
