Szechenyi Square Klebelsberg sculpture

Count Kuno Klebelsberg (1875-1932) was a prominent figure of Hungarian cultural policy. After József Eötvös and Ágoston Treffort he was the third most efficient minister of public education. He organized the national cultural policy on an entirely new basis. He formulated the basic principle of his cultural policy as follows: “We do everything in our power for the parallel development of popular education and high culture because, as I see it, this is the essence of Hungarian cultural policy.” His programme of building schools, organizing culture and developing cultural institutions had an influence on Hungarian cultural development, which still can be felt. He was attached to Szeged by intimate ties. He felt that he found in this town a potential for becoming the cultural centre of the South of the Great Plain. By now his vision has come true. The town’s 20th century development owes much to him. With the construction of the University buildings, by inviting to Szeged some of the most prominent professors, by founding the biological and agricultural research institutes, by developing cultural resources which would be sufficient even for a city he built the future city on secure foundations. He is buried in the Votive Church.
