Schoolchildren from the Geza Gardonyi Primary School in Devecser, Hungary play dress up at the end of the Szechenyi exhibit at the Hungarian National Museum in Budapest, Hungary on November 26, 2010. The children were invited guests to view an exhibition on the industrial accident that ruined many of their homes and which features their original artwork; on October 4, 2010, a ruptured industrial reservoir sent a torrent of toxic red alumina sludge gushing through their village, Devecser, and several surrounding villages, killing ten, injuring hundreds, and leaving several families homeless.
