The generation that includes witnesses to dictatorships is gradually disappearing so it is important to listen to them while possible, Human Resources Minister Zoltan Balog said at the end of a memorial walk in Budapest marking the European Day of Remembrance for Victims of Stalinism and Nazism on Wednesday.
Remembering makes sense only if the witnesses get to speak to us
Balog said at the House of Terror museum.
A few years ago, the Holocaust memorial year and later the Gulag memorial year and the ’56 memorial year were held to enable survivors to tell their stories and teach the generations that follow them.
Memorial years come to an end but remembering will continue
