After the First World War, the Peace Treaty of Trianon gave two-thirds of the territory of historic Hungary to neighbouring countries and the redrawing of the country’s boundaries meant that 3.3 million Hungarians lost their homeland. At the same time, a large part of Hungary’s arable land, forests, and gold, silver and salt mines were given to our neighbours. The Hungarians of the 20th century were not spared upheavals, undergoing other traumas through the Nazi and then the Soviet occupations. After all this, the guarantee of our survival is dealing with these experiences and the decision whether to go down the road of selfishness and hatred inciting a series of tragedies, or – to a greater extent than all other nations – to strengthen our awareness of cohesion, willingness to help each other, need for cooperation built on new foundations, and ability to foster and celebrate common values, culture and traditions.
