In the context of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the House of Terror Museum, the Prime Minister said “this is a success story; if I were younger, I would say the House of Terror is the coolest thing around”.
He added that the young, the elderly, people from the East and the West as well as every Hungarian visiting the museum receive here something important that they could not receive anywhere else.
Stressing the importance of the establishment of the museum, he said “here we find the embodiment of the connection between Communism and Nazism related in simple words, amply expressing the similarity that exists between the two”.
He highlighted that in the House of Terror Museum victims have names and fates that they tell us; however, the perpetrators, too, have names and faces. And the two are not mixed up, something that the communists were very good at all the way until the foundation of the House of Terror, he observed.
“It is no longer the former communists who tell us what is good and what is bad, what is true and what is a lie, but finally those whom that regime trampled upon: they were indeed the oppressed who were robbed of everything. Some were robbed of their lives, others of their families, some of their property, others of their careers, occupations and opportunities. Meaning that finally they’re the winners, history is on their side, and this is now recognised,” Mr Orbán said.
