András Nagy: Fatal compassion: the “Hungarian question” and the UN 1956-1963

The story I want to tell is neither bright nor dark, but it is important. It does not belong on the “brilliant pages” of history, although it follows them: the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. These pages do not recite the dreadful tale either, although they are not lacking in the horrors that are so familiar in our region. Furthermore, the story should not be seen as part of the great narrative of national victimhood, despite listing some well-founded reasons for it. It also doesn’t wish to point to global interconnections because this gigantic “puzzle” still lacks countless elements.”- says the author, András Nagy.

The book is available in Hungarian.
