___Hungary & Eastern Europe - Sixty Years Ago – A Press Review by a Hungarian Refugee___Back

The 1956 Institute has got a press article collection some years ago. The collector probably had been working as a diplomat in the US up to 1947. He was able to follow the American and Western European press later however. Articles relating Hungary and the Soviet bloc he cut and arranged chronologically to books with a reference to sources. He was doing so more than thirty years registrating the news on Hungary. For the next two years we are sharing his press reviews of 1955-66 on our web-site every two weeks, commemorating the sixtieth anniversary of the 1956 Revolution.
