21 - 21 March 2018The international day of antiracism, March 21 was honored with the annual ceremony of the Miklós Radnóti Award. Hungarian Federation of Resistance Fighters and Antifascists (MEASZ) presented the antiracist award of Miklós Radnóti to such Hungarian public figures, who in their own fields have significantly contributed to the fight against racism and discrimination. Among these advocates of humanism and tolerance are artists, theatre directors and performers, town mayors, editorial staff, civil organizations, and university professors. Since 2001 more than 250 people have received this award. This year’s award ceremony celebrated its 18th occasion in the Miklós Radnóti Cultural Center in the 13th district of Budapest. The prizes were handed over by Vilmos Hanti, the president of FIR and MEASZ. The ceremony hosted performances by previous awardees of the Miklós Radnóti antiracist prize, among whom the chief rabbi and a bishop delivered speeches.
