This episode features Maciek’s conversation with Andrzej Sadecki, Senior Fellow at Centre For Eastern Studies in Warsaw. They discuss the issue of remembrance of the Treaty of Trianon signed in 1921 which is a source of historical trauma for Hungarians. Andrzej explains why the Hungarian perception of the aftermath of World War I and Trianon are different than in other countries of the region. In 2021, on the centenary of the signing of the Treaty, a new monument commemorating Trianon was erected in Budapest which has sparked a further public discussion of current reinterpretations of Hungary's difficult past and the place of Trianon in Hungarian political memory.
