Quote of the day

"Those people who’re called the victims of Communism are not bricks of repression, but the building blocks of our freedom."

A quote from Tibor Navracsics, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Administration and Justice at the governmental commemoration of the Victims of Communism. The remembrance ceremony was held at the House of Terror Museum in Budapest on Tuesday. He added that there is no verb to describe what those people have felt whose land had been took or had not have chance to study further, became ill, suffered depression or committed suicide because of communism. 

Editor's note: Communism left a deep trauma on the Hungarian nation and its people. Many of the victims of communism suffered both physical and emotional scars that have never healed fully and most likely never will.
