This research is located at the interface of history and identity. It analyzes how the history of Communism is presented in museums in Budapest. By studying museum displays as scripts, texts, and narratives, this research can gather what museums want to emphasize, how museums assemble (and represent) certain moments in history, and how museums tell the story of the Communist era. It aims to understand how the representations of Communist history contribute to three levels of identity, namely the city of Budapest, the nation of Hungary and Europe as a whole.
