On offer is a fascinating, original 1944 Hungarian manuscript diary dated May 1st through November 6th handwritten by Herczegh M. Krisztina a young military nurse [Honvédségi gondozón ] working in a weapons and machine factory [an FÉG or Fegyver és gép gyár] in Budapest. Historians and researchers of World War II and the war in Hungary will find this a unique personal account of a critical time in Hungarian history as this diary was written during the build up to the Russian Siege of Budapest. We note that ominously the diary's abrupt end soon after the Russians began their assault. The 63 page book has fallen apart, the binding split the pages loose but all accounted for. The pages are very clean and the writing in Hungarian cursive is a strong intelligent hand. Overall F+.
