Miklós Radnóti is universally recognised as one of the great European poets of the last war. He was shot, his body was left in a ditch, and his greatest poems were discovered in his coat pocket and published after his death.
Latest from Hungary.
Somebody runs their car into the Radnóti statue in Abda, Hungary and breaks it. It is not the first time it has been defaced but now it's wrecked. Others - the neo-nazis - are busily burning his poems. Does that remind us of anything?
