The First Shot

The Kossuth Square massacre on 25th October 1956 was among the events of the 1956 revolution and struggle for freedom that took the greatest death toll. The Museum of the Hungarian Parliament launched a research project on the 60th anniversary of the "Bloody Thursday" with the aim of exploring the circumstances of the massacre. How did it all happen? Why did it happen? How many people lost their lives?

 

Hungarian Summary:

Az 1956. október 25-i Kossuth téri sortűz az 1956-os forradalom és szabadságharc egyik legtöbb áldozatot követelő eseménye volt. A „véres csütörtök” 60. évfordulója alkalmából az Országgyűlési Múzeum kutatást indított, melynek célja a sortűz körülményeinek feltárása volt. Hogyan történt? Miért történt? Hány áldozat volt? A film ezekre a kérdésekre keresi a választ.

 

The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 (Hungarian: 1956-os forradalom), or the Hungarian Uprising, was a nationwide revolution against the Hungarian People's Republic and its Soviet-imposed policies, lasting from the 23rd of October until the 10th of November 1956. Leaderless at the beginning, it was the first major threat to Soviet control since the Red Army drove Nazi Germany from its territory at the End of World War II in Europe.

The revolt began as a student protest, which attracted thousands as they marched through central Budapest to the Hungarian Parliament building, calling out on the streets using a van with loudspeakers. A student delegation, entering the radio building to try to broadcast the students' demands, was detained. When the delegation's release was demanded by the protesters outside, the protesters were fired upon from within the building by the State Security Police, known as the ÁVH (acronym for Államvédelmi Hatóság, literally "State Protection Authority"). Multiple students died and one was wrapped in a flag and held above the crowd. This was the start of the next phase of the revolution. As the news spread, disorder and violence erupted throughout the capital.
