Living memory

The foundation of Horn Gyula Virtuális Múzeum (Gyula Horn Virtual Museum) serves a double purpose. First of all, we would like to pay our tribute to the memory of our former Prime Minister with all the knowledge and picture material that has been collected over the years about this exceptional politician and statesman. Secondly, we are trying to provide information and inquiry opportunity to all the people interested in or studying about the broadly defined period of transition, about the evolution of the political situation or about Gyula Horn himself.

We believe that in a society in which access to information can mean the key to prosperity, this site will contribute to its users’ intellectual enrichment and to the shaping of their world view. Last but not least, we hope that the Virtual Museum is able to provide an interface to all the citizens and organisations who consider it important to preserve the memory of Gyula Horn, as well as the establishment of social democratic values in our country, but they can also use it to share their thoughts and material remains related to our former Prime Minister.

We are therefore looking forward to imprints of personal memory from everybody who was Gyula Horn’s foreign colleague, associate, fellow member of the party, friend, professional partner or had met him at a public forum or town hall meeting and would like to share the recollection of that experience.

We will publish an edited form of the content selected from the above on our website.
