“We Hungarians want to win peace, not war …” said the president. “The story of peace is like an open window that can lead us out of the darkness.”

To survive the war, we need the wisdom of our leaders and the work of artists who “can turn our pain, anger, loneliness, and experience into poetry, prose, music, and images.”
