This museum recounts the devastating effects of the Fascist occupation, (and round-up and extermination of Jews and Gypsies) followed by the Communist occupation (and more horrors that accompanied this era) of this country that decimated the Hungarian population, but not the country's spirit. For someone who speaks the language, the experience is probably a lot different than for a non-native. An English speaking visitor has the opportunity to read numerous monographs offered in each room, and they are informative and have great impact. There is only one problem, there is very poor lighting in the museum (due to a desire to set a mood, we guess), and the reader's job (read English speaking visitor's job) is painful, and slow as a result . Otherwise, you can come away from this museum with a binder full of explanations that could make for either a souvenir, or source material for a school report for a high school student. Either way, this is a learning experience worth having.We must learn from history in order to avoid dooming ourselves by repeating it.
