“One of the greatest things about Time Machine is that it gives a tool to explore history for everyone. It was never so easy as it is now to browse authentic archival sources and to find reliable information about stories, fates, connections and citizens. Like many European citizens, Hungarians also had to suffer from separation of families and migration across the continent. By having a European community and network of researchers and professionals from many fields, finding memories and relatives would be easier as these kinds of online platforms don’t have physical and geographical boundaries. The Time Machine has a significant effect on connecting researchers and developers to collaborate and extrapolate their common work into their joint vision and their platform. The Budapest Time Machine already published architectural plans and historical maps to act as a source for historians.”
