Triumph and Tragedy - The Hungarian Revolution 1956

Triumph und Tragödie - Der Ungarnaufstand 1956

Yet it destroyed the Communist regime within days. Secret documents now accessible reveal the confusion, fear and split within the party leadership in Budapest and Moscow, the fateful decisions about two Soviet military interventions, the betrayal of the Imre Nagy Government by the West and by the Tito regime in neighbouring Yugoslavia. The main actors of the documentary are the still living freedom and resistance fighters in Hungary with the international background highlighted by exclusive interviews with the former KGB-Chief General Vladimir Kriuchkov and the longterm Russian Ambassador Valery Musatov as well as with the former US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger.
