Index of the records of the 1939-44 Hungarian parliamentary session available at the library

For the effective research of parliamentary records, it is indispensable to have the index of the debates at hand. For the period between 1861 and 1939 all the index volumes for Hungarian parliamentary sessions are available, however from 1939 until 1947 the publication of index volumes had temporarily been suspended. Thus anyone interested in the history of Hungary during the Second World War could benefit from our brand new searchable database created by our librarians that makes it possible to browse and navigate the contents of the parliamentary records for the 1939-44 session.
