1956 - a year to remember

A year that the Hungarians understandably remembers is 1956, he year when the Hungarian people revolted against the oppression of the Soviets. The revolt was drowned in blood and the many dead are seen as martyrs in today's Hungary. In February I saw numerous statues and monuments all over Budapest to commemorate the events, like this one at the eternal Flame outside the parliament.
