Hortobágyi nemzeti park (Magyarország/Hungary) - Summer 2020 - part 13

You might have gotten the impression that the Hortobágy National Park is all nature and nearly no inhabitants. You'd be right about that when talking about the current situation, but that has not always been the case. On the contrary, at a certain moment in time people were forced to come live out here. Live and perform slave labour. The communist dictatorship that rose to power after WWII opened forced labour camps in the region and deported people from all over Hungary to this nowadays deserted again region. As a monument to this sad episode - the Hungarian Gulág - the Jó Pásztor ökumenikus templom (Oecumenical Church of the Good Shepherd), designed by Rácz Zoltán, was built.
