Jobbik "Breakout" memorial march was held on Sunday

Monday, February 10, 2014

On February 11, 1945 German-Hungarian forces staged a last desperate attempt to break out of the encircled city of Budapest rather than surrender to the advancing Soviet forces. Patriot groups across the country commemorate to the occasion -- which is also called 'The Day of Honor' -- each year at he anniversary of the tragic event that claimed the lives of thousands of people including civilians.

The main commemoration service was held on Saturday in the Castle District in Budapest.

Jobbik traditional memorial march started Sunday at 2:30 pm; the commemoration service attended by close to 500 mostly young people, among others, members of the “Kárpátia” rock band even though the weather wasn't optimal, it rained on and off all day.

The memorial service wasn't subject to approval by police because it was organized as a nature tour. Participants visited the most memorable places of Buda's hilly terrain where the most fierce fighting took place between the hopelessly outgunned and outnumbered German-Hungarian forces and Red Army units.

The video footage below shows attendees gathering in Budapest third district; among others, the lead singer of “Kárpátia” rock band János Petrás shows a Hungarian helmet of the second world war to the camera crew that he himself restored to new condition.
