In a time like ours when certain forces conspire to eliminate historical consciousness opening a historical memorial park is a brave thing to do said László Kövér, the Speaker of Parliament on Sunday at the inauguration ceremony of Kétpó Historical Memorial Park in Jasz-Nagykun-Szolnok county.
The speaker of the house emphasized it was a wise thing to name the memorial park after historical Hungary in an age when nation-states and national cultures are under attack.
In the European Union but also in Hungary there is a life and death struggle between forces that promote and forces that want to eliminate historical consciousness said Kövér adding that it was admirable that Kétpó community took the side of the former.
Kétpó is one of Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok county's oldest settlements and has always placed great emphasis on promoting tradition and culture. Residents of Kétpó are the descendants of tribal Chief Ond, who got into difficult situation many times throughout history, but always bounced back.
During the inauguration ceremony, the seven conquering leaders, as well as King Attila and Prince Árpád's statures have also been unveiled; the sculptures are the work of wood carver Pál Czupp. The map of historical Hungary is also part of the historical memorial park, which has been created from stones.
