He said: according to the programme, the Prime Minister will visit the Museum of the Jagiellonian University, and will then attend the memorial meeting of the conference entitled Central-Europe – the Fate of a Region in the Drift of History held on the occasion of the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Polish professor Waclaw Felczak.

Following this, Mr Orbán will lay a wreath at the memorial plaque of Waclaw Felczak, he added.

Mr Havasi also told MTI that the Prime Minister will attend the inauguration of the memorial plaque in the old quarter of Krakow which pays tribute to the protests organised by the Revolutionary Committee of University Students in 1956 and the help rendered to the Hungarian people.

Waclaw Felczak (1916-1993) was a professor of history, a researcher of Polish-Hungarian relations, and a courier in World War II who was imprisoned in the fifties for his opposition views.
