Doni tükör
Thu, 02/21/2013 - 18:00

Péter Erdélyi’s documentary is the first serious attempt at showing the relationship between the Hungarian army on the Eastern front and the local people from the latter’s point of view. Witness memories and stories of local peasants are supplemented with Russian and Hungarian historians’ comments. When the film was made in 2003, it was deemed so controversial that none of the public or commercial television channels dared show it.

Participants in the discussion: Péter Erdélyi film director, Krisztián Ungváry, historian, 1956 Institute and Oral History Archive

Moderator: András Mink, curator of the exhibition
