Last Friday was monumental for 2RRR’s Hungarian program Radio Mozaik and for Hungarian Australians in general. The President of Hungary, Katalin Nokak arrived on our Aussie shores and gracefully addressed her nation’s people at the South Hungarian Club in Glendenning.
Radio Mozaik’s Gusztáv and Katalin Ilosvay had the honour of meeting their homeland President face to face with our darling Katalin providing a warm, welcoming speech, thanking the President and the Hungarian government for recognising the Hungarian community of Australia.
Our beloved Gusztáv was presented with the Hungarian Order of Merit Knight’s Cross to make the event even more special! The prestigious award acknowledges Gusztáv’s 30+ years of dedication to preserving the identity of the Hungarian diaspora and the Hungarian culture through sculpture and radio broadcasting.
