In 2020 we had to celebrate Otto von Habsburg’s 108th birthday in an unusual way due to the epidemic. Through the technical possibilities of the 21st century, we could still think together online talking about the legacy of our Foundation’s namesake and Europe.
On November 19, 2020, the “My Homeland, Christian Europe” scientific competition, which was held in a narrow circle due to the epidemic situation, was presented in the premises of our Foundation on Szentkirályi Street.
Notre invité sera Alain Lamassoure, ancien ministre des Affaires européennes et ancien député européen, qui a travaillé sur le chantier européen avec quatre Présidents français successifs. L’interlocuteur d’Alain Lamassoure sera János Martonyi, ancien ministre des affaires étrangères hongrois.
Otto von Habsburg is known to have studied the history and fate of Hungarian settlements with great interest. No wonder, then, that more than 60 municipalities have chosen him as their honorary citizen. However, through invitations to various occasions, he visited even more places in Hungary. Due to the historical connections, he would have liked to visit the small village of Mány, the northernmost tip of Fejér County, but the invitation was received late.
