We invite you to join us and our co-sponsor, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, on Friday, June 16th (3:00-5:00pm) for a presentation, interview, and book signing of József Cardinal Mindszenty’s Memoirs with author Daniel J. Mahoney at the Victims of Communism Museum.

PLEASE NOTE: This event WILL NOT take place at the CIC, but rather at the VICTIMS OF COMMUNISM MUSEUM located at 900 15TH STREET NW, WASHINGTON, DC.

The event will include a presentation by Dr. Mahoney on Cardinal Mindszenty (1892-1975), who was one of the anti-totalitarian titans of the twentieth century. The Hungarian Cardinal, now named Venerable by the Catholic Church, tenaciously defended human dignity and religious freedom against the totalitarian movements and regimes that subjugated east-central Europe during the worst years of the twentieth century. As the late Cardinal George Pell has testified, “The memoirs of Cardinal Mindszenty are enthralling, evidence of a terrible time, to be set with Solzhenitsyn’s tales of the Gulag.” But like Solzhenitsyn’s work, Mindszenty’s Memoirs also provide a witness to fidelity and hope.

The book includes a foreword by Joseph Pearce and an introduction by Dr. Mahoney. These moving Memoirs reveal the full story of the legendary hero-priest who has come to be regarded as a symbol of Christian and national resistance to communism.

Dr. Mahoney’s presentation will be followed by an interview, including a Q&A period. The event will conclude with a book signing.
