      FYI


      Subject: [Arcan-l] ACA advocacy letter - the Hungarian Archives
       
      Dear Archival Colleagues,

      [A] letter has been sent on behalf of the Association of Canadian Archivists (ACA) to the Ambassador of the Republic of Hungary concerning the Hungarian government’s decision to introduce legislation that would permit the removal and destruction of Hungarian communist secret police, interior ministry, and state security files currently held at the Historical Archives of the Hungarian State Security in Budapest. Hungary's parliamentary secretary for justice announced that his government believes that a democratic state cannot "preserve the immoral documents of an immoral regime."
