The Paper Cup

Written in Hungarian, “Donation from the readers of the Toronto Telegram daily newspaper to the Canadian Red Cross”. Thousands of these paper cups were provided by the Canadian Red Cross to the Austrian Red Cross for refugees from Hungary who managed to cross the border in 1956 following the upsurge of violence and repression in Budapest.
