International Relations Talk: "Hungary and Britain: A History of Wishful


Thinking?"

The British Hungarian Society is proud to announce that Professor Tibor Frank will present a
fascinating talk on the rich history of British-Hungarian international relations in June at the
Carlton Club. This is the latest in a series of events hosted by the Society, which was founded in
1990 and has enjoyed the patronage of Otto von Habsburg and the support of ambassadors and
other dignitaries from both countries.

London, United Kingdom, June 24, 2017 --(PR.com)-- The British Hungarian Society is proud to
announce that Professor Tibor Frank will present a talk on international relations at the Carlton Club.

The professor will present a fascinating exploration of the rich history of British-Hungarian relations in
his talk entitled:

"Hungary and Britain: A History of Wishful Thinking?"

He will discuss Hungarian efforts to gain the goodwill and political support of Britain from 1848 through
1944 and again after 1956, while at the same time always belonging to alliances representing Britain's
adversaries. The doublespeak of Hungarian propaganda endeavours is an intriguing reflection of the
divided nature of Hungary's identity between East and West.

The British Hungarian Society has recently held three successful events and supported a fourth:

"Reflection on the Society's journey thus far and celebration of the 15 March Hungarian Revolution of
1848" at the Oxford & Cambridge Club;

Memorial Dinner for Sir Gavyn Arthur at the Athenaeum Club in May;

gnes Kory's intriguing talk on Hungarian musical life, Jewish participation and the Holocaust at the
Oxford & Cambridge Club in May; and

Supported the VIP UK launch of artist Mt Orr by Jane & Lance Hattatt at the Fairhurst Gallery in
April.

In brief, the Society was founded 27 years ago and has enjoyed the patronage of Otto von Habsburg and
the support of ambassadors and other dignitaries from both countries. The committee includes Countess
Ilona, Professor Dr Eva Kohner, who was awarded an OBE for her ground-breaking work in treating
Diabetic Retinopathy, and Adrian Longley OBE, a notable solicitor, Robin Hutchinson, the Treasurer
Paul Boon CF, and Secretary Vilmos Kuhajda ACSI.

The distinguished members of the Society have backgrounds in politics, economics, science, medicine,

finance, trade, culture and education and it hosts a range of meetings in accordance with its statement of
