1956 - The Kossuth Lajos Square Massacre and Its Memorial

Author : Csaba Németh

Under circumstances still unknown, Hungarian army and Soviet military units opened fire on peaceful protesters gathering on Kossuth Lajos Square on 25 October 1956, which took a heavy toll in human life; the exact number of victims has still not been established. During the reconstruction of Kossuth Square in 2014, the exhibition and memorial site paying tribute to the victims of the massacre and the revolution of 1956 was opened in what once served as one of the Parliament building's ventilation tunnels. This brochure commemorates the events of the 'bloody Thursday' of 25 October, the revolution of 1956 and the era, while also taking readers around the central space of the exhibition.
