The Russian Federation Ministry of Defense today published a number of recently declassified documents commemorating events leading up to and involving the February 1945 liberation of Hungary by Soviet Red Army forces.
The multimedia portal, titled “Hungary Remembers and Cannot Forget,” appears to cover a number of events throughout the 50-day siege of Nazi-occupied Budapest. There are hundreds of documents available on the nicely-produced website, a number of which will eventually be translated and posted on this site. Got a favorite you’d like to request? Drop me a line by leaving a comment.
The site is completely in Russian, but for those who don’t read the language, you can get a feel for the scope of the effort here.
