Anyone who wishes to express his or her deepest worries about the resolution of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences to close down the Lukács Archives in Budapest can do so by singing this petition. For decades, the Lukács Archives has enabled academic and non-academic circles access to the documents related to the life and professional achievements of György Lukács, a key figure in twentieth-century philosophy and literary theory. As it is located in Lukács’ home of his late years, it has also served as a memorial site. On this basis, the petitioners call on the authorities in charge to re-consider their decision.
