Abstract

Many scholars and commentators have discussed the events of 1956 in Hungary, revealing the identities of the participating groups they claim to represent in those events, for which they likewise are entitled to be competent advocates. This essay challenges those biased claims from the perspective of one who actually was there. Instead of calling the events a “revolution”, one should take smaller steps. Rather than, arousing revolutionary fervor, convince the self-styled revolutionaries and counterrevolutionaries of the merits of reform.
