Tribute to the revolution

Hungarians all over the world are remembering the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Exactly fifty-six years ago today, brave Hungarian students, workers and soldiers stood side by side to fight for their freedom. Thousands were killed, imprisoned or tortured for their activities during the revolution. Around 200,000 civilians had to flee Hungary after the Soviet Army crushed the revolution on November 4, 1956. Many of these people ended up living in Canada, the USA and Australia. This video is a moving tribute to the revolution and the brave freedom fighters who fought against overwhelming and impossible odds.
