23 October 1956

So many events to commemorate, so much blood and defeat, so much to forget and maybe to  forgive.

Today is the anniversary of the Hungarian uprising, still well within living memory.

And long enough ago for many never to have known of it. Today's extended feature in LIFE magazine offers as fresh and vivid an update an one is likely to find in the Western mass media.

With thirty truly amazing photographs.
