The honorary citizen of the Hajdú-Biharian small town; István Jelenits was born in Berettyóújfalu in 1932. He lived there until he was eight years old, and then he lived in Oradea for several years. On April 8th this year he gave a lecture on János Pilinszky in Újfalu in the community centre named after Zoltán Nadányi, and then on Sunday there was a Holy Mass at Posticum in Oradea. After his speech in Újfalu we took a walk from the former Leventeház to the old Tisztviselőtelep where the performer spent his childhood.
