An account of the Hungarian revolt of 1956, in part compiled from film flown out before Soviet Army intervention.
Initial peaceful demonstrations for better living conditions and freedom from tyranny inspired by news of Polish revolt. Ineffectiveness led to "explosion" of revolt, secret police fired on people. Hungarian army joined people, Budapest became "a battleground". Soviet army moved in - crude explosives used to stop Soviet tanks. "The people unite as freedom fighters against a tyranny that could no longer be tolerated". Later the Red Army "ruthlessly suppressed the revolt", which had continued over a week - 15,000 believed killed. Just as power of secret police seemed destroyed, 20 Soviet divisions moved in, and Soviet Government talked of withdrawal. The World protests (long section): demonstrations in sympathy with Hungarian people in Berlin, London, France, Rome, New York, Latin America, Saigon, Netherlands and Denmark where workers "stopped their labour in silent tribute to their fellow workers in Hungary".
