Hungarian Uprising - 1956

 

 


When in 1956 the Hungarian people fought against the rules and policies imposed by their government and also fought against the dictates of the Soviet Union, it became already clear on November 6th that the revolution was going to fail and finally did end on November 10th. During these days many were able to flee Hungary and reach Austria.

They found refuge in various European countries and in the United States. Also Donald's cousin Steve fled Hungary with his 8 month pregnant wife and his son Peter and daughter Kathleen. They came to live in the US. Steve was offered a job as a manager of the Webster plant, the Record Corporation of New England, which was supervised by George Curtiss. There the Remington and Masterseal discs were pressed.

Sometime later Gabor released another disc with Hungarian Gypsy Music, this time played by the Imre Magyari Orchestra, on Masterseal M-667. The back of the cover indicates Palace.

The liner notes reminded many Americans, and not only those of Hungarian descend, of the Revolution of 1956.

The Liner Notes of Masterseal M-667 begin with the following text:

The one event of 1956 that will never be forgotten is the tear-compelling display of courage and heroism on the part of the Hungarians. Their great fight for freedom after years under the black Communist clouds, has made the name "Hungarian" synonymous with "Bravery".
