Rimavská Sobota against collective memory

The mayor of the southern Slovak town of Rimavska Sobota put a halt to an exhibition entitled There's no identity without memory in the city centre. The touring project presents the life stories of 14 personalities who resisted different totalitarian regimes. The independent daily Dennik N brought information that it would not be displayed in the streets of Rimavska Sobota, allegedly due to the tourists. The organizer of the event, the Post bellum NGO, had expected problems as 2 years ago, the right-wing extremist Kotleba People's Party Our Slovakia had sued them for allegedly supporting and promoting Zionism, which was later dismissed by the police. The Dennik N daily pointed at the fact that the mayor of Rimavska Sobota, Jozef Šimko, has been a donor to the extremist party.
