Cleveland Mayor Jackson at Hungarian Revolution of 1956 Ceremony

The Crack in the Berlin Wall began with a hole in a flag in Budapest!

At one time (maybe still) there were more Hungarians in Cleveland than anywhere in the world outside of Budapest.  Many Hungarians came here in 1956 because of the Fight for Freedom against the Soviet Union in Hungary.

 Mistress of Ceremonies Jeanette Grasselli Brown introduced Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson at the program celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution and Freedom Fight of 1956. 

The event took place in the Rotunda of Cleveland City Hall and dozens of ‘56ers were in attendance.
