The Hungarian Revolution of 1956, taken from the BBC's "History File."

The 1956 Hungarian Revolution was the first tear in the Iron Curtain. Hungarians from all walks of life rose up against insurmountable odds to fight the brutal Soviet-installed Hungarian communist government.

Thousands died fighting, others tortured and executed, while 200,000 were forced to flee.
