“Remembering The 1956 Hungarian Uprising
October 23, 2019 11:23 GMT By Ivan Gutterman
On October 23, 1956, Hungary rose up against communist rule. It was the first armed revolution against an Eastern Bloc regime. The uprising was crushed and the return to democracy that had been fought for was delayed until its anniversary 30 years ago, when the Hungarian Republic was declared in 1989.”
