The organizers of Kurultaj want to erect a monument for our ancestor, Attila the Hun

Friday, July 27, 2012

The Turán Foundation wants to erect a large scale monument to King Attila in central Budapest, Hungary. The organization launched a signature campaign to garner support for the project.

Zsolt András Bíró, the chief organizer of Kurultaj said the Hun-Hungarian kinship is an issue, which has scientific and sociocultural significance as well. The Hun-Hungarian kinship needs to be researched as it carries scientifically justifiable elements. But regardless of the outcome of the debate, it is undeniable that the ancient Hungarian history carries elements of consciousness that are based on the theory of the Hungarian-Hun kinship; our history and our chronicles consider King Attila as the founder of the ancient Hungarian dynasty said Bíró.

"We are talking about one of the world's most dominant leaders who redrew the contemporary map of Europe and of power relations, who is resting in Hungarian soil; many distant people (especially in the east) are claiming Attila as their ancestor even if he never even visited most of those countries, yet they erect memorials to him. Even if we wouldn't have anything to do with the great Hun warrior, we should still remember him as he lived most of his life in this country.” said Bíró.

Building a monument would be a gesture to all the people who are also claiming that the Huns are their ancestors. With such a gesture, we could demonstrate our solidarity with those people and pay tribute to our common origin; we must show to the world that we haven't forgotten our cultural roots, our ancient legends and traditions.

"At this point in time, there is a strong support for such a memorial among the Hungarian public. The monument would be also an investment that only increase the prestige of our capital and it would have a beneficial effect on tourism as well," said the head of the Turán Foundation.

Zsolt András Bíró asked all Hungarians who are committed to the spiritual and moral renewal of the country to join the initiative and be part of the project that aims to re-conquer our past. Let's rise to the occasion and be brave enough to realize the dream of many generations -- raise a lasting memorial to one of our history's greatest figures King Attila said the chief organizer of Kurultaj.
