Today, 23 October, we remember the heroes of the 1956 Revolution and Freedom Fight, in which the Hungarian nation rose against its domestic and foreign Communist oppressors.
This year, Hungarian Conservative joins the commemoration by paying a special tribute to those revolutionaries who were forced to flee Hungary after the crushing of the revolt, and found a new home overseas.
We are launching our new Diaspora section on this very day, to salute the brave men and women, the 1956ers and their descendants, who started anew in the United States and other Western nations, but who never gave up their Hungarian identity and their love for the motherland.
A special thanks goes to Ildikó Antal-Ferencz who has consented to the publication of her interviews on our website in our new section.
We also encourage our prospective authors to submit their works for inclusion in the section by sending them to [email protected]. We welcome articles that focus on the everyday life, culture, aspirations and concerns of ethnic Hungarian communities living outside the borders of Hungary.
On the 67th anniversary of the 1956 Revolution, we wish our Readers a sombre remembrance and a stimulating reading.
