The news from the Russian front was distorted, claiming German victories, misleading the whole population. The huge casualties suffered by the Hungarian army never reached the newspapers, or radio. There was never one word about the concentration camps. The death of millions came as a shock to everybody after the war. The true happenings were hermetically sealed and only by listening nightly to the Radio Free Europe broadcast, did we get a glimpse into the reality.

The newspapers started to change the tone, the radio became a tool for the communist propaganda and we had a feeling that our lives will change soon – the calm before the storm lasted only a short time...We are facing trouble again!
