The Hungarian Revolution and the struggle for freedom in 1956 is one of the most important moments in the history of Europe, but also of the world during the Cold War. The Hungarian uprising showed that the power of the Communist Party and the totalitarian dictatorship in Europe with a libertarian and democratic tradition can only be maintained through the use of brute military force. The exhibition, apart from short informative texts on historical events and Hungarian-Yugoslav relations, shows photos of original newspaper articles from the then Croatian (Yugoslav) Zagreb dailies (Narodni list, Vjesnik), but also presents articles from the Croatian emigrant press (Hrvatska revija, Hrvatska država, Hrvatski glas).
