DAILY PHOTO: Terror Háza Múzeum, Budapest

Taken in Budapest in 2014.

This museum, located at Andrássy út 60 in Budapest, was used by both the Arrow Cross Militia (i.e. the Hungarian fascists during WWII) and the ÁVH (the secret police from the Communist era.) Specially-constructed (and diabolical) torture cells in the basement probably made it convenient to keep from one regime to the next.

NOTE: The name of this museum has changed. I’m using the old name not as a passive-aggressive, underhanded offering of support for colonial oppression, but rather because the new name is “The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya” and — like Twitter — I think my title block has a character limit. So if they’d like me to use the new name, they need to stop spinning the wheel and buy a vowel, already.
