1956. Two repressed nations living under the communist regime revolted!


It started in Poland with the worker’s uprising of 28 June in Poznań.

The demonstration slowly took on a national, anti-communist and anti-Soviet character. The communist authorities decided to use the army to contain the workers’ revolt.

Historians cannot agree on the actual number of casualties of the Poznań in June 1956. In 1981, it was estimated at 74. The latest research places the death toll at 57, whereas the investigation unit of the IPN sets the figure at 58.

Four months later a similar scenario happened in Hungary.

The Hungarian revolution of 1956 began on 23 October with a rally of students in Budapest as a sign of solidarity with Poland. The demonstrators referred to the workers’ uprising of 28 June 1956 in Poznan. The Hungarian Revolt was an attempt of the Hungarian people to free themselves from Soviet domination and break the monopoly of the communist party. Unfortunately, this heroic act of courage was bloodily suppressed by the Soviet army, which entered Budapest on 4 November 1956.

One of the men involved with the suppression of the Hungarian revolt was Ivan Serov, then the head of the KGB.

He personally conducted the KBG operations and was responsible for the arrest of Imre Nagy’s (the revolt leader) supporters. Previously, Serov played a significant role in the persecutions against former Home Army soldiers and the Polish anti-communist resistance. Back in 1940, he was one of the top-ranking officials responsible for the Katyn Massacre — mass executions of nearly 22,000 Polish POW’s.

In total 2,700 Hungarians were killed as a result of the Soviet intervention, and almost 20,000 were wounded. Due to the situation prevailing after the revolution in Hungary, about 200,000 people who feared repression, fled the country.

The communist authorities in Hungary brought nearly 26,000 people to court, 230 death sentences were given in show trials.

The youngest victims: Romek Strzałkowski and Peter Mansfeld are the symbols of the Poznań Workers’ Uprising of 28 June 1956 and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Both boys died as a result of the repression that the communist authorities used against participants in the events of 1956.

Peter was hanged a few days after he was 18 years old. Thirteen-year-old Romek Strzałkowski was shot dead on 28 June 1956.

Poles, especially the inhabitants of Poznań and the Wielkopolska region, offered their help to the fighting Hungarians.

They supplied the needy with the most important gift of all – blood – saving human lives. According to historians, the first two planes departed from the Poznań airport on 29 October. In total, apart from blood, the inhabitants of Poznań sent 100 kg of medicine and medical supplies, 20 tons of food, 86 elements of outpatient equipment to Budapest. They also donated over one million zlotys to the Polish Red Cross. The inhabitants of other Polish cities in the region also demonstrated their willingness to help, with as many as 3,500 families from the Poznań Province offering to provide shelter for Hungarian children.
