A Former Hungarian Refugee Asks: Have Canadians Lost The Will To Fight For Their Freedoms?
In the 1950's and 1960's, I lived in Communist Hungary. Because of alarming events now happening in Canada, I am reminded of my days in Hungary and I feel compelled to write about the oppressive Communist regime after WW 2 in Hungary. In 1944, fascist Nazi Germany had invaded Hungary. At the end of WW2, the allied winners divided Europe and gave Hungary to the Soviet Union to govern and ultimately oppress. In 1948, a small Hungarian minority of Communists took control of the country illegally and began the collectivization of land, industry and all aspects of life.
