New Website To Remember 1956 Heroes
Imre Nagy, his fellow martyrs and other heroes of the 1956 Uprising will be commemorated this Friday at a large-scale festival organised by pro-Fidesz website PestiSrácok, chief editor and organiser Gergely Huth told state TV channel M1 on Monday morning.

The festival called “For a Free Country” takes place in the City Park on June 16, the anniversary of the execution of Nagy and his fellow martyrs in 1958 and also of their reburial in 1989.

Fans from Italian football club Lazio will be invited, and will sing the marching song “Elõre mind pesti srácok” “Forward All Pest Lads,” as that is the club’s official anthem.

The main attraction will be a concert by Róbert Szikora and R-Go. The show will run from 5 p.m. until midnight on Friday.
