Jobbik calls on all Hungarian municipalities to name a street after blacklisted writer Cécile Tormay so honoring her memory

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Naming or renaming streets are within the jurisdiction of local governments; therefore, nobody can stop any of the municipal governments to name a public place after the blacklisted author.

It is unfair that individuals that come "from afar" tell us who we can honor and who we should reject. I call on Ronald S. Lauder, the president of the World Jewish Congress, who recently voiced astonishment over Budapest city council's decision to name a street after Cécile Tormay to apologize for his rude remarks on one of the greatest Hungarian writers Cécile Tormay writes Jobbik MP Enikő Kovács Hegedűs.

I call on all Hungarian municipalities to name a public area after the Hungarian author who was decorated with the Corvin-chain and nominated multiple times for the Nobel Prize; her epoch-making literary work, the “Bujdosó Book” presents an eye-witness account of the “rat revolt” (meaning the 1919 Bolshevik coup) that prepared the way to the Trianon tragedy.

In the near future Jobbik led municipalities across the country will submit proposals for naming public places in their respective municipalities after Cécile Tormay so honoring her memory concludes her message Enikő Kovács Hegedűs.
