Today is the 58th Anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution.

Fifty eight years ago Hungarians rose up against the Soviet oppression. For three weeks they fought but the superior power of the Soviet army overpowered the Hungarians. Many of them escaped, including myself. It was a sad but ultimately a good decision. It is probably debatable as I might have created some discomfort for some of my fellow politicians but I leave the judgement on that issue to my electorate.

I am grateful for the welcome Canadians offered to me and have been trying my best to repay the kindness. 

Thank you Canada!
In celebrating this anniversary I am enclosing a couple of pictures Debbie has taken an hour ago. Our cinnamon bear has paid us a visit and was kind enough to let his/her picture taken. 

Enjoy the photos!


Attached also a somewhat sensationalized video uploaded in 2008.

thank you Gyula for the bear pictures but also for reminding us about the Hungarian revolution. I was in school at that time in Switzerland and remember that day so vividly. I am also very happy to call Canada my new home.
