The Chair of Turcology of the St. Kliment Ohridski University celebrated its 65th anniversary [Sofia]

In the framework of a scientific conference with the title „Turkish Studies Today – Challenges And Perspectives”, the St. Kliment Ohridski University celebrated the 65th anniversary of the establishment of the Chair of Turcology. Professor György Hazai’s career started at this university in 1956 where he was a visiting lecturer. At the opening session of the Conference, Cecilia Hazai briefed the participants on the soon-to-be-operating online catalogue of the György Hazai Library in Budapest.

Valery Stojanow, Prof. Hazai’s student, read the chapter of the soon-to-be-published memoirs of the outstanding Hungarian Turkologist that recalls the time György Hazai spent in Bulgaria.
