We must remember those killed by a murder system, a damned thought – stressed Laszlo Kucsák, a Fidesz parliamentary representative, on Saturday’s commemoration of the Soviet Union of Hungarian Political Rabs and Forces Workers (Szorakész).
He said that the nearly 800,000 Hungarians deported, most of whom were away from their homeland due to inhumane conditions and treatment, fell victim to the Communist regime with some 30 million inhabitants of the Soviet Union.
He referred to the fact that the 20th century was the most devious century in our history, because “more people have been ravaged by state-organized violence than in the previous millennia.”
László Kucsák emphasized that the survivors are still reminders of a dark era that has now been replaced by the hearts of Hungarians, but they have to be satisfied with our own lives, with the teaching of our children.
The 20th century taught us that we can not be idle, discouraged, and too tired to try to change the world every day; most of the time we can not choose from a multitude of tasks, what is what we are doing today, what is left for tomorrow, “the speaker said, adding” we can only count on one another “.
He also pointed out that we can not expect external actors to understand our goals, our paths. “We can only expect that our work will be dictated, we will often shout for our common faith and would like to erase our common memory from our memory,” he said.
He added that we can only effectively respond with this unity, with the conviction that “the weak are broken together, the strong together, that we may change the world together.”
Erzsébet Menczer, the chairman of Szorakész, initiating the memorial day in 2012, under the auspices of Alekszandr Szolzsenyicin, quoting the Gulag system as a world writer, stated that a healthy European man can not be a communist.
As he said, returning from several years of robbing, the former prisoners had to count on the necessity of silence, as the events were classified as State Titles, where the Communist authorities were again threatened by new retaliation. The socio-liberal governments later only “took note of strictly private commemorations,” he added.
He pointed out that the wall of silence was only broken in 2012; since then, it is worthy to commemorate those who “survived the visit to hell,” but at the same time it is still often necessary to explain in the West that the Communist regime was just as cruel to the people as Nazism and Fascism.
