World War II has ended, the Cold War has ended, but the Great War continues,' claims historian Dr Maria Schmidt in her recent book entitled 'A New World is Born'.

In this trailblazing discussion, chief historian of Hungary's WWI Remembrance Committee, Dr Maria Schmidt, former senior advisor to Margaret Thatcher, John O'Sullivan, and Professor Emeritus of History at the Ryerson University Dr Tamás Barcsay re-discover the aftermath of the Great War and how it transformed the societies of the British Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire into what we call Great Britain and Hungary today.

Join this intellectual journey as British and Hungarian experts explore similarities and differences after 1920 seemingly brought an agreement to cease fire on the old continent.
