Hungary Remembered

“Most important characteristic of “Hungary Remembered” is the effect it has upon those who enjoy the production, compare the trials of the subjects to their own lives and lifestyles. One is compelled to revalue what freedoms are essential in one’s life.” George Washington Honor Medal, Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge.
