The exhibition focuses on the rootless nature and the fall of three Hungarian Republics established in 1918, in 1946 and in 1989–1990.

September 28 is the International Right to Know Day when civil organizations, professional institutions, journalists, and what is most important, citizens celebrate the right to access to public information – or where such a right legally does not exist, urge its adoption. Blinken OSA, the custodian of documents from recent history, has always regarded making these documents publicly available as one of its main mission.

Recently, he headed the OSCE's observation missions for elections in the U.S. and in Kazakhstan.

In the past two years, he gave courses on global press freedom issues at Columbia University.
At the end of the year, as part of our efforts to make a difference in our smaller (or larger) community, Blinken OSA traditionally organizes charity actions. Last year, however, instead of donations, we collected stories: positive stories about inspiring people.
