2017 Lecture Series begins with military history

On  Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 2 pm, the Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Society will host a lecture titled:

The Royal Hungarian 2nd Army at the River Don (1942-1943)

The presentation will be made by  Csaba B. Stenge, PhD, historian and visiting representative to Cleveland of the Hungarian  “Mikes Kelemen Program”.

The history of the Hungarian 2nd Army’s year-long campaign in 1942-1943 is still very intriguing for the broader audience. The causes of this vivid interest are threefold: because so many people were involved in the campaign (well over 200,000 men), because it was so far away from Hungary (close to 2,000 km away) and because of the defeat and staggering losses in January, 1943 (in January, the Hungarian 2nd Army lost nearly 100,000 men). In his lecture, Csaba B. Stenge PhD gives a broad view of this tragic chapter of the Hungarian military history.

Lectures and programs are held at the Hungarian Heritage Museum, in The Galleria, Downtown Cleveland, with coffee and refreshments following the presentation.

On the 2nd Saturdays of the month when we have programming, the Museum is open from 1-4 p.m.

$5 parking is available in the Galleria underground garage.

Lecture fee: $10 for adults and $5 for students.

A viszontlátásra!!!! See you soon!!!!
