Video: March 15 speech

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán addressed commemorators who had gathered in front of the National Museum in Budapest on the March 15 national holiday. The prime minister also greeted hundreds of Polish supporters who had travelled to Budapest from Poland to pay their respects to the revolution. The Hungarian Revolution of 1848 was eventually crushed but it still remains an important part of Hungarian history. The March 15 holiday is the second most important of Hungary's national holidays.
