According to szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, the 28-year-old Emánuel Csorba lived at Körtér with his family in 1956, which meant that he was able to witness and capture the events of the revolution directly. The passionate photographer went from street to street and captured the historic moments of the last days of October, 1956.
These photos were published for the first time recently at the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the 1956 revolution. They depict several locations of the revolution, like Astoria, Széna Square and Móricsz Zsigmond Circus.
The photos were published by the son of Dr Emánuel Csorba, Ferenc Csorba, on his Facebook page. The work of the architect, onetime head of department at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, UNESCO expert, candidate of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and owner of Knight’s Cross from the Order of Merit of the Republic of Hungary, has been admired and shared by many since the publication of the special photos.
