23. October: Hungarian National day

Time Man of the year 1957: Hungarian Freedom fighter holding a PPSh-41

Tomorrow it will be 53 years since the famous 56’ revolution in Hungary. October 23, 1956, was a day of hope in Hungary and also in nations around the world looking with hope towards Hungary. It looked good for a long time, until the communist forces returned to Hungary – and all other nations mostly looked at what was happening, without involving themselves.
