Celebrating a national holiday with a nice #lunch!
March 15th stands for democracy and freedom and it commemorates the #HungarianRevolution of 1848, which grew into a war for independence from Habsburg rule.

I finally have a #studiocouch ! Yesterday i moved many of the items I've adopted from my parents house to my house in preparation for putting their house on the market. And i found the perfect place for their 60 year old couch (reupholstered twice) which they've had since they emigrated to the #unitedstates after the #hungarianrevolution in the late 50s.

Found at the local public library booksale: A Student's Diary, Laszlo Beke. 1957 Canadian (original) 1st edition. An account of his participation in the 1956 Hungarian Uprising. My grade 6 teacher fled after '56. More than a few ended up in Edmonton. And brought with them the idea of the sidewalk café.

A memorial to the victims (mostly hungarian jews) who were told to remove their shoes before being shot and killed by Arrow Cross Militiamen in 1944-45. The bodies then fell into Danube river to be swept away

🇭🇺 Crossed the Danube River and hiked up to the Citadella (Hapsburg fortress), a fort built in 1848. From atop, I was able to capture this amazing shot of the city, with the river cutting it in half. It was a beautiful hike up through the park.

Ventured down a back road in #budapest . Came across this old apartment building in #Sziv u. Complete with bullet holes from the #Hungarianrevolution

The Citadel in Budapest, Hungary. Note all the pockmarks. This fortress has seen a lot since it was built in 1851 by the Austrians.

Budapest, Day 21 (Part 2): On a more personal note, my mother was born in Budapest but her family immigrated to the US six months later largely due to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, which was the first major threat to Soviet control since the USSR's forces drove Nazi Germany from its territory at the end of WWII. I was able to see the apartment building where her family lived at the time (now admin offices for a small university), the hospital in which she was born (still a hospital but for the care of the elderly), and the school her older brother attended (now a small university). She lived in a part of the city known as Újpest, meaning "new Pest". Also seen are photos from a memorial dedicated to the night when peaceful student protesters were fired upon thus starting the revolution. Thank you to my uncle, @joebencze2264, for gifting us with a guided tour of the neighborhood and the city. 🇭🇺🏘🙌#budapest #ujpest #hungary #europe #europetrip #chemists #abroad #family #mother #immigration #neighborhood #familyhistory #revolution #hungarianrevolution #hungarianrevolutionof1956 #1956
