On October 23, 1956, what began as a mass rally in Budapest quickly evolved into the Hungarian Revolution. It lasted until November 4th, when it was crushed by Hungarian Security Police and Soviet tanks and artillery, killing tens of thousands of rebels and resulting in a quarter of a million people leaving the country as refugees. Erich Lessing of Magnum Photos was the first foreign photojournalist to arrive in Hungary, and he documented the short-lived uprising and its stark aftermath in a series of world-famous photographs, reproduced here in 230 stunning duotone images.
