The searchable database is part of the 3 Volume documentation, you can
buy in Polish, German or English >from the Museum. A list of the
different publications is in English to be find under
http://www.auschwitz.org.pl/publikacje/index.php?language=EN
A short information about the database/book:

Death books >from Auschwitz
Vol. I. Reports
Vol. II Index of Names A - L
Vol. III Index of Names M - Z

This documentation is based on the original records kept by the SS
authorities of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camps.
They contain entries for the death dates of Auschwitz prisoners in the
period >from July 27, 1941 to December 31, 1943. Most of these names of
prisoners who died in Auschwitz, documentated by the SS administration,
have not been published anywhere before and remain a historical source
of unique importance...

The first part is an interesting general information of the camp by
several historians, I didn't bought the books because it deals with a
period, before the Hungarian massdeportations and more or less with
political prisoners, but to be correct many Jews at that time were
inprisoned as politicals. It might deal also with many >from
Czechoslovakia? Slovakia?. I know some Slovakian woman deported with the
first women transport to Auschwitz already on 26. March 1942, also
people >from Prag sent 1942 to Lodz/Litzmanstadt, they might be included.
So in my opinion (but I can fail) the Jews of Hungary inside the border
of 1942 are not included in the datebase, but some >from greater Hungary
might.
