In October 1956, the Hungarian people rose up against their Soviet overlords; by 4 November the revolt had been brutally crushed, leaving thousands dead and a quarter of a million in exile. Erich Lessing was the first Western photographer on the scene, and the 150 powerful images reproduced here capture the hope and despair of the short-lived uprising. Lessing’s introduction recalls his own experience in Communist Hungary, while accompanying essays reflect on the revolution’s geopolitical significance.
