National Day of Mourning was remembered at Corpus Hungaricum

It was 167 years ago when 13 Hungarian generals were executed in Arad by the order of Austrian general Julius Jacob von Haynau. They are known as Martyrs of Arad.  Prime Minister Count Lajos Batthyány was executed the same day in Pest. 6th of October has been a national day of mourning since long in Hungary.

Due to rain yesterday a silent remembering ceremony took place at Nándor Wagner's Corpus Hungaricum in Székesfehérvár. After the national anthem had played wrenches of city Székesfehérvár, the local military regiment, civil organizations, Academia Humana Foundation, a Polish group and civilians were placed at live martial music.
