Hungarian Revolt in 1956

I am putting this into my blog as a reminder to me as much as anything. How easy it is to let history and people drop out of sight.

Gen. Bela K. Kiraly, the commander in chief of the revolutionary forces in the Hungarian uprising of 1956, who for more than half a century was considered a folk hero in Hungary, and who returned there in 1989 to serve in its post-Communist government, died Saturday in Budapest. He was 97.
