Hungarians and Hungarian-Germans as POW’s and Forced Laborers in Soviet Captivity (in the GULAG)
With numerous events the government of Hungary – within the framework of the Gulag Memorial Year – is commemorating the seventieth anniversary of the post-WWII deportations of many of our fellow countrymen to the Soviet Union, where they were used as unfree labor or sent to one of the infamous prison camps, the GULAG. One of the most significant commemorative events will take place on February 25-26th, when the VERITAS Research Institute for History hosts a conference, the purpose of which is to provide a realistic picture of those tragic events that were misinterpreted or purposely censored in the decades that followed. As the title implies, Hungarians of all backgrounds were impacted, irrespective of where in the Carpathian Basin they lived, be it the Hungary of today, Vojvodina,Transylvania, the former Hungarian Highlands or Sub-Carpathia.
