HOMAGE FOR A GREAT HISTORYCAL PERSONALITY: Árpád Göncz
The end of the 20th century brought on the world scene an event without precedent: the fall, from the inside, of a great empire with a terrible military force, through a peaceful revolt of masses.
It brought on the scene, at the same time, a new type of hero, which those masses, ready to fight and to die for their freedom, freely elected as their leader. This hero was neither a warrior, nor a fanatic agitator, but a visionary intellectual who believed in the force if its faiths and ideals. Árpád Göncz, was one of them.
