Trianon 100 – Count Apponyi and the Trianon Peace Conference

Count Albert Apponyi was undoubtedly one of the most important political figures in Hungary's struggle for the alleviation of the severe measures stated in the Treaty of Trianon. However he had also been a widely respected and internationally well-known actor in the Hungarian political scene well before the Paris Peace Conference, having filled a whole range of political posts from a Member of Parliament (in the Lower as well as in the Upper House) to a party leader and government minister. He was particularly acclaimed as a highly talented public speaker making him the best possible candidate for representing Hungary at the Conference.

Charter of the United Nations signed 75 years ago

The term "United Nations" was coined by Franklin D. Roosevelt, former president of the U.S. It was first used in 1942 by the 26 allied countries when they undertook the difficult task to bring the Axis powers to their knees. The Charter of the UN had been worked out and signed by the representatives of 50 nations at a UN conference between April and June 1945. Poland was not represented at the conference but later also signed the document, thus the total number of signatories is 51. 26 June 1945, the day when the Charter was formally approved marks the birth of the United Nations Organization.
