House of Terror

House of Terror, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
It is on the list of interesting things to see on Tripadvisor Budapest. The name is a little scary. The house of terror was opened in 2002. This building is located at Andrassy Avenue Budapest. It commemorates the victims of both the communist and Nazi regime in Hungary. The present building was previously the Nazi headquarters. In 1945 the Soviets overthrew the Nazi regime and used this building for their headquarters. They also used the torture chambers below. I didn't know this was the House of terror when I took this picture. But there was a emotional pull towards it. And a reluctance to go nearer.
