Abstract

Some twenty minutes’ walk from the center of Debrecen, Hungary’s second largest city, there stands a complex of three two-storeyed red-brick buildings. Originally serving as an orphanage of the reformed church of Hungary, the buildings now have a rather different role: two of them house the physics departments of the University of Debrecen, while the third one is where Atomki, the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) was founded in 1954, and where its offices and some of its laboratories are still located. Anyone passing by is reminded of these times by the 800 kV cascade generator, which peacefully rests in the garden after being decommissioned in 1992. But it is not the only reminder there of the historic times.
