Description
Summary:Rákóczi’s War of Independence had memories after the long war, for example in the historiography and local memory. After two centuries the reigning king of Hungary (Franz Joseph I) had decided to allow the reburial of Rákóczi and his fellow comrades. After a long time Rákóczi and his allies had come home, first in Budapest, than in Kassa. After the Treaty of Trianon (1920) the former memorial land spaces of Rákóczi had broken away from Hungary. After the First Vienna Award (1938) many territories had been given back to Hungary. Kassa was given back as well in that period. Kassa became the current European Capital of Culture in 2013 which had a huge effect on remembrance. The Hungarian Parlament has made two different decisions on Rákóczi’s remembrance. In 2013 they instituted a national day for the war of independence (6th of May). In the 21st century finding and building local and national identities had become an object to achieve for Slovakia and Hungary. Capturing Kassa three times (1706, 1906, 1938) also had an effect on both of these nation’s national identity. After a long and unfriendly relationship, the two countries have started to get in touch with the help of the common past, which can be used as a positive tool for reconciliation. I think that Rákóczi’s image can be used for that purpose.
