Synposis: October 23, 1956. For 12 days, countless Hungarian teenagers fought in the bloody Hungarian Revolution against Communist tyranny and overwhelming Soviet armor. They set up tank barricades, tossed Molotov cocktails, and with their confiscated Russian submachine guns made a stand on the streets of Budapest, hoping to hold out until help arrived from the West. But there was no help. Nobody came to their aid. Dr. Peter Hargitai revisits the sights of the freedom fight and shares the story of one brave freedom fighter—a 14 year-old girl which strongly parallels his own experiences.
