Dr. Tóth Zoltán (1883-1940) was the manager of the Institution of Young Visually Impaired and later the Training Collage. He worked out the system for conception of special education training. The exhibition tries to follow the life of Dr. Tóth Zoltán with documents and photos. We line up his most important publications from his volumes to the articles published in professional papers.

We do not only use written documents and photos to follow the life of Dr. Tóth Zoltán. For him Orgovány meant privacy to which he was connected to the village through his wife. He took on many tasks in the local community. We show interviews with people of Orgovány to present this feature along with photos and a documentary.

The objects are mostly to show his role in teaching the visually impaired. We show early Braille typewriters, a Braille press, demonstrating blackboards to teach geometry etc. In the focus of the exhibition there is an equipment to teach blind and deaf people that are wonderful both in its function and aesthetics.

The closing chapter of the exhibition is the photo album that was made by Labori Mészöly Miklós of the Institution for the Visually Impaired of Budapest in 1927. The album presents in detail the weekdays of the student, their education, the improvement of skills etc. We can see the part of the photos on see-through paper placed on the windows demonstrating the development of latent film with the help of transparency.
