    The lucky were who left, what came after the 1956. oct.23 period was much worse than before. Apparently the US told the Russians before the events, Hungary wasn\'t one of the allies (like Russia was) so the Russians got a free hand to do whatever. My father couldn\'t leave because he still had one year left in the University & would waste all of his studies.
