Government secret police with machine guns are ordered to fire into a crowd. Men, women, and children are slaughtered at the nation's Parliament...Fifty years ago, the world held its breath as a nation rose up against tyranny and terror. The event was the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, when a small nation dared to challenge their Soviet oppressors. Though a bloody defeat, the uprising revealed to the world the true nature of communism, which rules by terror. World-renowned artist Balazs Szabo knows that terror first hand. "Knock in the Night " is the artist's cautionary memoir of growing up under Communist brutality. This extraordinary book vividly recounts those desperate times and is an urgent reminder that where there is no democracy, there is no safety.
