A commemoration was held in Budapest to pay tribute to the victims of a fusillade that took place near Parliament on October 25, 1956, on Tuesday.
László Géza Sömjéni, head of the organiser Freedom Fighters Foundation, said October 23, the outbreak of the anti-Soviet revolt, was an “iconic day” in Hungarian history.
Sömjéni also said that “Hungary is under appalling attacks even now, therefore we must fight for our survival in every hour and every minute”.
The commemoration was attended by House Speaker Laszlo Kover and former Prime Minister Péter Boross.
