I'm hoping to do my dissertation study on existing tensions over memorials, museums and generally the commodification of communism in Budapest.

I've been thinking of focusing my research on the 'House of Terror' in Budapest. Does anyone know of any tensions or existing debates about the existence of this exhibition of communism? This could possibly be between those who lived through it and the younger generations less affected?
Or are there any other similar situations that have caused debate in Budapest? Possibly ‘Statue Park’?

Thanks for your time, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Also I'm travelling to Budapest this August, so if anyone would want to meet up to discuss and see the sites of these tensions/debates, then please get in touch smile.gif
