David A. J. Reynolds

Football and Fifty-Six: Identity and Restoration

"Beneath a coerced veneer, deeper and stronger connections between people and place, religion, community, history and national culture endured. The uprising could not have manifested the Party’s characteristic failure to bury memory and meaning beneath imposed replacements in football unless that failure pre-existed the uprising."


David Pryce-Jones

The Fall of Budapest

"In 1956 the reality of Soviet Communism destroyed the ideal of equality as a superior social good. Instead the Hungarian uprising was irreversible evidence that nationality, culture, human relationships and even happiness itself depend on the supremacy of liberty as a social good."


István Bibó

Memorandum: Hungary, a Scandal, and a Hope of the World – Excerpts

"It is the duty of the Hungarian people, who now bear both all the glory and the brunt of the historical role, to reject all cooperation with whatever is falsehood and aggression even at the cost of reducing their living to mere vegetation. It is not their duty to start a new uprising and provoke new retaliations. But it is their duty to hold onto the flag of their revolution in the face of slander, forgetting, and weariness – it is the flag of a freer mankind."


Gyula Illyés

Submerged With Atlantis – A Diary 1956-57 – Excerpts

"The missing 1956–57 part of the Diary of Gyula Illyés (1902–1983) was found in the attic of the family house in Buda, in April 2014, in an envelope, hidden among miscellaneous papers in a wooden box. It covers the days of the Revolution and the early days of the Soviet retaliation, from 25 October to 31 January."


Gyula Kodolányi

“With Nine Million Fascists” – On the Origins and Spirit of the Hungarian Revolution

"Had he lived to see it, the Hungarian 1956 would have also been George Orwell’s Revolution. His most acute, but also most generous mind would have understood and appreciated a modern nation’s rising in unprecedented unity, and also with striking magnanimity."


John O’Sullivan

The Mystic Chords of Memory

"The memory of a nation encompasses many millions of individual memories. And when the memory is of 1956, dateline Budapest, that means many millions of individual fates, including loves lost or left behind, as well as the collective fate of the Hungarian people."
