An exhibition on a legendary site of the 1956 Hungarian revolution
By that time, however, Corvin Laners established their fame: they successfully fought the Soviet tanks and assault guns in the early hours of 28 October. By making advantage of their well-choosen position and the force of surprise, revolutionaries could manage to destroy or capture several Soviet assault guns.
This exhibition and videos were created by the working group of the "Hungary 1956" digital humanities project at National Széchényi Library in collaboration with Google.
The Project (to be launched on 23 October 2016) is about creating a georeferenced online living archive of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution with a particular emphasis on its visual heritage (films and photos) by making advantage of GoogleMaps.
Creators would like to thank the MANDA Archive (http://mandarchiv.hu/), Fortepan (www.fortepan.hu), and the 1956 Institute (now integrated into the National Széchényi Library, see www.rev.hu) for supporting the Project. Their materials are used in these exhibitions and videos.
