Gyula Horn, Prime Minister of Hungary 1994-1998 Autograph

Written by András Kolozs on Monday, 30 January 2012. Posted in World Leaders

Gyula Horn is Hungarian policitian. He served as Minister for Foreign Affairs of Hungary from 1989 to 1990 and as Prime Minister from 1994 to 1998.

 

He is remembered because he played a major role in 1989 in opening the "Iron Curtain" for East Germans, contributing to the later unification of Germany, and for the Bokros package, the biggest fiscal austerity programme in post-communist Hungary, launched under his premiership, in 1995.

Mr. Horn has received several awards for his achievements in foreign relations, among others the Charlemagne Award of the city of Aachen in 1990.

For my generation, Mr. Horn is the great leader of the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP). After his retiring as Prime Minister, he stayed one of the key figures in the MSZP, but never came back to the top. He had excellent ability of communicating with everyone from urban and the countryside. It was easy to meet him personally on several events, he often signed his books and election materials. His handwriting is characteristic, he writes with big sized letters.

One of my friends from the party told me in 2000: „ I am sure some day we
all will be proud of that we could have seen him In-person.” I think
it too.

From 2007 Mr. Horn is ill, he is suffering from Alzheimer disease and lives in a hospital. He has no public appereances and communicates with nobody. Three years ago we can feel day by day Mr. Horn's lack from the Hungarian politics.

    NBA Global Games 2014 in Berlin

    NBA Global Games 2014 in Berlin was great opportunity for basketball fans to obtain autographs from members of NBA Champions San Antonio Spurs. A game was planned on 8th October, but the team already arrived to Berlin on 5th October. I came to capitol of Germany 1 day later. It gave me more than a 2 days to collect.  Players, coaches and stuff stayed in The Ritz Carlton Hotel, well-situated in the city centre, not so far Grosser Tiergarten or Brandenburg Tor, what furthered to coming out of hotel.

    Autograph Collecting Report - Berlinale film festival 2012

    Autograph Collecting at the Berlinale film festival was difficult this year. During the cold weather celebrities didn't stay long time outside but we still have some great success while many stars had been kind and friendly and signed some wonderful photographs for us.

    FC Barcelona

    FC Barcelona is one of the biggest football clubs in the whole world. The club sells souvenirs for thousands of Euro year after year and hits next sales records. It seems to me that original, received in-person autograph could be better and more valuable item than next scarf or t-shirt. This is why so much fans decide to go to FC Barcelona training ground Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despi. I was there several times and I did not regret at all even if I did not collect lots of signed photos.

    Sebastian Vettel:

    All the time Sebastian was surrounded by his fans when he was on his way from the Red Bull hospitality to the pit lane. He tried to write many autographs, but it was very difficult because of the hectic around and because of the bodyguards. When he was able to sign his signature was ugly.
