The volume Színháztörténet nagyítóval [Theatre History Through a Magnifying Glass], edited by Mirella Csiszár and Tamás Gajdó, provides documents about the period between 1920 and 1949 for the study of the history of Hungarian theatre. The publication presents interviews, memoirs, contracts, letters, and transcripts of political comments in thematic chapters. The present review examines these chapters in more detail and, through an analysis of the book’s extensive footnote apparatus, shows how the volume navigates the labyrinth of Hungarian theatre history.
