Exhibition: Cross-in-Fire

Christian Persecution in the Middle-East
  • September 19, 2017 – October 31, 2017
  • Hungarian National Museum , 1088, Budapest, Múzeum krt. 14-16.

The aim of the exhibition is to draw attention to the processes taking place in the Middle East, to point out the unsustainability of the situation, to explain the causes and to outline the consequences – each on a scientific basis.
Through the presented personal stories, we would like to draw attention to those individuals who suffer from extremely serious atrocities due to their belonging to a community or culture.

As the Hungarian National Museum is the keeper of the Hungarian and Christian culture and its historical heritage, it is also the task of the Hungarian National Museum to analyze and visualise these problems.
