Budapest: House of Terror

It’s not terrifying, just disturbing.  The most fascinating thing about our trip to Eastern Europe has been to learn about a history that is so foreign to us, but happened in our lifetime.  The story of Communism, the lives destroyed by it, and the communities that emerged from it have been such a valuable learning experience on this trip. The House of Terror is dedicated to the Hungarians that lost their lives during the Communist Regime and Iron Cross Fascist Regime.  Pictures of the interior are not allowed, unfortunately, since this museum is such a visual experience.  Below is the wall of pictures dedicated to those who lost their lives, the “iron curtain”, and fabulous signage to the museum (when the sun hits the building at the right angle, the sign casts a shadow on the building that reads “terror” – so symbolic!)
