mar 13, 1963 - Hungarian Revolution

Description:

Hundreds of thousands of Hungarians, in cities and the countryside, rose up against occupying Soviet forces and against the country's homegrown secret police, the State Protection Authority. For a few weeks, it seemed like the rebels might push the Russians out altogether. By mid-November, though, the Soviet army had regrouped and launched an all-out assault on a nation. Roughly 3,000 Hungarian civilians were killed during those three weeks. The uprising was crushed. But the ripples of the revolt were wide ranging, and long lasting.
