Romanian Hearth Union Wikipedia
The Romanian Hearth Union or Romanian Hearth Federation (Romanian: Uniunea Vatra Românească) is nationalistic civic organization, founded in Târgu Mureș in 1990.
The main purpose of the organization is to save Romanians "hunted down in their own country" from the Hungarians viewed as "hordes plaguing humanity". The emergence of the "Romanian Hearth" was helped by ex-Securitate officers. The organization has been described by various sources as quasi-fascist, radical nationalist, xenophobic ultra-nationalist, anti-Hungarian, extreme-nationalist and anti-Semitic. It was associated with the former political party of PUNR.
