Synopsis

Phoenix-like the Hungarian people survived the horrors of the war, the disappointment of the first socialist republic, the disillusion of the brief but terrifying communist rule of Bela Kun, and the bitterness of seeing their beloved country dismembered by the Treaty of Trianon. This is the world that Miklos Banffy describes in the Phoenix Land.
