Photo Exhibition On 1956 Opens At EP
A photo exhibition marking the 60th anniversary of Hungary’s 1956 anti-Soviet uprising opened in the European Parliament building on Tuesday. The exhibition has been organised by the European People’s Party and is being held in the EP building’s Yehudi Menuhin Space in Brussels. Hungarian MEP József Szájer opened the event on behalf of House Speaker László Kövér who was unable to attend due to illness.

The 1956 revolution “provides faith, strength and an example to all freedom-loving communities in the world, including the community of the European Union”, he said. In order to combat the challenges the EU faces today, it should not weaken but strengthen “the national identities that give strength” to the community, he added.
