In this paper, we discuss the representation of Hungary and Hungarians in the Netherlands. The focus is on the comparison between two Hungarian historical turning points that received a great deal of attention in the Dutch as well as international press: the Uprising of 1956 and the System Change in 1989-90. The main questions we investigate are: is there a difference in the representation of Hungary and Hungarians in Dutch newspapers between the Uprising and the System Change? How can these differences in the perception of Hungary and Hungarians be traceable? Finally, to what extent does the representation of Hungary and Hungarians in Dutch media change according to the historical contexts in both Hungary and the Netherlands?
