In Hungary the present political, social, and moral situation is largely influenced by the historical events of the 20th century.The 1956 foundation made a considerable effort, to show the main periods of this time, showing impressive photographs of the events.We can glimpse not only the history crisis, but the everyday life and cultural events as well. The elements of this database are true visual documents of these eras taken by those people who lived in these ages. Therefore we can recognize not only their ways of life but their points of view and their attitudes, feelings to their times.The database can be regarded as important inheritance for the present generation, to understand the current situation of our country.
