“The weekend was organized by Beke, and we had a great time together. I almost learned to speak in Czech and Slovak, and they almost learned Hungarian. We closed the event with a photo demonstration, where everyone shook hands with everyone else, and we took photos of this, hands holding hands, one by one, and put the small cubes next to one another like a mosaic. In the end, all those who were shaking hands signed the photos. By this action, we symbolically made peace with each other, at a time when our political system was still in conflict with Czechoslovakia. We made peace, and that’s what was important.”
