"Amid nationalist resurgence and severe recession in Hungary, many observers fear that the reforms undertaken by Viktor Orban's government in the cultural sector will severely jeopardize the country's heritage.

National Office of Cultural Heritage (KÖH), a governmental institution that has
long been a watchdog for Hungary’s historical treasures, has marked a further

from the Hungarian people who fear it will pose new threats to the conservation
of significant historical monuments and sites." La suite sur opendemocracy.net
