NEAR FINE COPY & RARE * **** The Russian invasion of Hungary in the fall of 1956 came as a big shock to the people in the Netherlands and led to an enormous solidarity with the Hungarian people. The photographer Ata Kandó, who originated from Hungary, took the initiative to produce a photo book as a means of collecting funds for Hungarian refugee children.Together with the Dutch photographer Violette Cornelius (1919-1998) she made a reportage about Hungarian refugees on the Austrian- Hungarian border. Under the auspices of the National Committee for Aid to the Hungarian People, the photographs appeared in a small book called Hongaarse Vluchtelingen (Hungarian Refugees) published by De Bezige Bij and designed by Jurriaan Schrofer. The book belongs to the most important photo books in the Netherlands since 1945.
