A trip to the last century!


1956: 1956 Hungarian Revolution

In Oct. 1956, Hungarian rebels launched a revolt against Soviet forces. The rebels won the first battle, declaring former premier Imre Nagy head of state and requesting intervention from the United Nations. The next month, however, Soviet aggressors stormed back in. In this image from Gabor B. Racz, the head from Stalin's statue can be seen in the street after rebels toppled his monument.
