  1. When Rákosi was appointed leader,the ÁVH (secret service) arrested over 1.5 million people,and they were transported to the Hortobágy (not the river) to labor camps. The most famous one was near Recsk.

  2. There are probabely few prouder and more courageous people than the Hungarian and Polish, fighting oppression even in the face of unbeatable odds. I salute you from Switzerland, may our common deed, the love of liberty and freedom, never die out.

  3. My grandfather was a Hungarian soldier who had to flee after the Soviets invaded the country for the second time. In his lifetime we survived as a Jew in Hungary as a boy in ww2 and said that the Russian oppression was worse than the Nazis.
