Quote of the day

 "You don't know what it's been like living here (Hungary), you've been told it's been 8 years of socialism, when it fact for us, it was 8 years of hell" 

Hungarian freedom fighters tell a BBC reporter who was in Hungary during the 1956 Revolution. The Hungarian people were treated horribly by the communist government and the AVO communist secret police for years. Some foreign reporters and journalists made it to Budapest and Hungary during the revolution to report on the situation. Ordinary Hungarian people were finally able to tell them about the brutality of the communists. Before the revolution, the truth about the brutality of communism in Hungary was not known to the free western world.
