The Budapest city council voted yesterday to strip Joseph Stalin of his honorary citizenship in the city, along with other such “illustrious” figures as Josip Jelačić, who led a Croatian army against Hungary in 1848, Prince Alfred of Windisch-Grätz, who commanded the Austrian forces that same year, Julius von Haynau who oversaw the execution of the 13 Martyrs of Arad, Alexander von Bach, the Austrian politician who oversaw the postwar repression, and Ivan Paskiewicz, the Russian general who the Austrians had to call in because they couldn’t do the job themselves, among various other figures. Local kebab shop owners will reportedly withdraw their application to grant citizenship to Suleiman the Magnificent, citing a newly unfriendly environment for those who in the past invaded Hungary.
