KAFEDIK – Brno / About

About

In the second half of the 1960s a small group of enthusiastic Hungarian students in Brno decided to found their own club for Hungarian students in Brno in the manner of Endre Ady Students’ Club in Prague. This came to fruition in spring 1966. The club was named after a figure of the late 18th century sentenced to prison for his activity in the then reformatory movement of Hungarian Jacobins: Ferenc Kazinczy, who had served his sentence in the Brno prison. The beginnings were not easy. In 1972-73, under the chairmanship of Vendel Horváth, KAFEDIK membership was between 120 and 130, 40 per cent of which studied engineering. Instead of a clubroom, members gathered mostly in a pub called “Čtverec” (Square) near the halls of residence. Gradually, club evenings changed from self-education events into lectures. In 1976, Sándor Csenger became chairman and thanks to campaining in secondary schools back home, the membership rose to 200. That period is considered the heyday of Kafedik. In the 1990s, such students’ clubs were going through hard times in general because of administrative obstructions arising from the division of Czechoslovakia. After difficulties at the outset of a new millennium, Kafedik is thriving again. 2012 saw Mátyás Mihály as chairman, who along with a well working team – e.g. Anna Peniaško, Annamária Kramár, Gergely Szabó – as well as other “core members” manages to organize both the traditional and new events of the KAFEDIK students’ club.
