Stalin head,  Hungarian Revolution, 1956. The Hungarian Revolution was a spontaneous nationwide revolt against the government of the People's Republic of Hungary and its Soviet-imposed policies, October 23-November 10. It was the first major threat to Soviet control in Eastern Europe since World War II.  My father fought as a child and subsequently fled to America to avoid execution.
