LOCATION: George Washington University
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation and the Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies at George Washington University’s Elliott School are pleased to co-host a commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution.
The event comprises a keynote address from noted historian Dr. John Lukacs, remarks from experts on Hungarian political development, and “Massacre and its Memorial,” an exhibit of images and descriptions of the Kossuth Square Massacre sponsored by the National Office of Public Collections and Directorate of Public Education of the Hungarian Parliament. Together each component will contribute to understanding how the experience of 1956 has shaped and continues to shape Hungarian political development, and to commemorating the lives lost to communism, the deadliest ideology in history.
