Hungary, along with other Central/Eastern European nations, experienced a century of chaos suffering from the effects of two world wars and decades of Soviet control.

Danielle Luman, certificate student at Salem State University and graduate assistant for the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, asserts that after 1989 these countries wanted to move forward into the 21st century, largely ignoring their traumatic history.
