There is a commemorative piece of writing about Zoltán I. Tóth (19111956), historian, academician, dean of the Faculty of History at ELTE and martyr of the 1956 revolution on a Polish social media website that displays victims of Communism.

On 25 October 1956  at the time of the mass killing on Kossuth Square  his students and colleagues were walking with him to the party headquarters in Akadémia Street. In front of the building a hail of bullets was fired and Zoltán I. Tóth was hit by a lethal shot. (Photo: the southern side of Kossuth Square on that day in October / Fortepan)
