A treasure trove of photographs, most unpublished until now, taken during a month long trip to Hungary in the pivotal political year of 1938 by Life Magazine's most renowned photojournalist, Margaret Bourke White. The photographs not only furnish us with a look at pre-WWII Hungary and its people, but because Bourke-White took unsentimental portraits of the major political figures in Hungary, from the far right to the far left, Communists, Fascists, Socialists, Social Democrats, Smallholders, as well as the primary government officials, it provides us with an insight into these individuals and history provides us with the consequences of their actions.
