In the framework of the Debrecen Literary Days, the exhibition opened at the Méliusz Library in Csapókert.

An exhibition of postcards of Józsefné Steiner was opened in the Csapókert community centre on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the writing of the Hungarian national anthem.

At the opening of the exhibition, Edina Szilágyi, the district’s local government representative, said that it is a pleasure to have this unusual exhibition in the Csapókert Community House, as it would give everyone the opportunity to learn about the life and work of Ferenc Kölcsey (writer of he Hungarian national anthem). 

István Puskás, Deputy Mayor of Debrecen, said that this year we are celebrating several anniversaries in which Debrecen has been deeply involved.

Among others, the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Hungarian national anthem, and the 200th birthday of Imre Madács and Sándor Petőfi. They also wanted to link these with the anniversary of the birth of the poet Mihály Csokonai Vitéz, as part of the Debrecen Literary Days.

“This year we are also celebrating the 250th birthday of Mihály Csokonai Vitéz, which we will commemorate with a number of events around his birth. In the first two weeks of November we will try to raise awareness of this great legacy. This is a great opportunity to look back on the events of this year as we approach the end of the year. These are important years to remember,” István Puskás said.
