Budapest Travel Guide: 7,772 reviews and 18,032 photos
To commemmorate the bravery of those Hungarians who participated in the Revolution against Communist rule, large translucent panels were placed in front of Parliament, with images from those fateful days in October 1956.
The picture of this Hungarian participant in the 1956 revolution was the inspriation for the cover of TIme magazine which named the Hungarian Freedom FIghter as its Man of the Year.
Unfortunately, the various Hungarian political parties could not even agree on how to commemmorate the 1956 revolution. The different parties held separate events around the city.
