Dávid Bán

Uncommon Travellers – Grandeur and Ceremony at the Railway Station

"The railway station, being a representative space, is also a reflection of political, historical and social public thinking. The building itself, with its decorative elements, reflects the mentality of its period and the message railway builders and city planners wanted to communicate to people."


Tibor Várady

Socks on the Chandelier, Lives by a Thread – File No. 12 198

"... I realised that in exile/emigration it becomes suddenly clear from where the past starts. Mental images, like pictures at an exhibition, are fitted into frames and gain significance, just as the salt shaker on the dining table that was brought from home and carried over the ocean, and now no meal can be complete without it."


Gyula Kodolányi

August–September 1944 – A mosaic selected from diaries, memoirs and histories III.

"... we were being worn away between two hells, between two cunning, lying, murderous great powers, and whatever we did, the final result would have been the same. Our fate was decided in Tehran in November 1943, when the Heads of State of the Western Allies met and decided the fate of Europe; that was the only place anything could have been done to help."


John O’Sullivan

Orbán’s Hungary: Image and Reality – Whose Democracy? Which Liberalism?

"As rights multiply, democracy exercises less and less control over government and law; liberalism is transformed from procedural rules into substantive policies enforced by courts, treaties and international agencies; and the voters lose all influence over how they are governed – or indeed oppressed."


Nicholas T. Parsons

Populism and the Failures of Democracy

"When Prime Minister David Cameron rides to the House of Commons on his bicycle to show how environmentally conscious he is, but omits to tell us that all his necessary papers are carried by a car travelling behind him, is that a populist gimmick or principled leadership? The idea that “mainstream” political parties never adopt the same tactics as their “populist” opponents is, of course, moonshine."


Péter Ákos Bod

Why There Was No Marshall Aid after 1990

"Textbooks at the University of Economics in Budapest referred to East Germany (GDR) as one of the ten most powerful industrial nations of the world, on a par with South Korea. Western analysts generally concurred. The Soviet Union was considered, right up to its disintegration, as a highly industrialised country; although whether it was termed an advanced nation is another matter."


Christiaan Alting von Geusau

Human Rights, History and Anthropology: Reorienting the Debate

"In the history of mankind, by far the most human rights abuses were and are in fact perpetrated by ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances – not by monsters, and despite international treaties."


Géza Jeszenszky

Hungary, Nato and the War in Ukraine

"A year ago the fear persisted among many Central Europeans that they may be regarded by the US as expendable. It may have been difficult for the US to drop them as allies, but less so to simply neglect them."
