Hungarian Revolution of 1956 – Consul and 56er Laszlo Bojtos

As President John F. Kennedy said “October 23, 1956 is a day that will live forever in the annals of free men and nations. It was a day of courage, conscience and triumph. No other day since history began has shown more clearly the eternal unquenchability of man’s desire to be free, whatever the odds against success, whatever the sacrifice required.”

Honorary Consul General of Hungary Laszlo Bojtos was a 56er.  He gave the keynote address 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. Consul Bojtos told of his experiences in 1956.
