It has become a tradition at our university to commemorate the 1956 Revolution with a candlelight memorial. This year, starting in front of the Great Hall, we march to the memorial plaque of Zoltán Tatay with candlelight. Zoltán Tatay was a third-year, excellent veterinary student who was fatally shot on October 24, 1956, in his white cloak, while caring for wounded people.
I kindly ask you to join the memorial with a candle and pay our respects to the heroes of the 1956 Revolution and to Zoltán Tatay.
The commemoration will take place on the 26th of October 2020 at 7:15 p.m., starting in front of the Great Hall.
Dr. Péter Sótonyi
