Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 On October 23, 1956, a young man named Josef Toth went to work in the locomotive factory in Budapest. He was a handsome youth with a clear skin and a smile that was always ready. He wore cheap corduroy pants, a very cheap windbreaker with a zipper that rarely worked, and heavy, warm shoes. #2 When Josef Toth left the factory, he joined a group of young people who were trying to drive the AVO out of Hungary. #3 The students and young workers stopped a tank from taking away any more students. The workers who were repairing the tank looked down on the dead AVO man with silent disgust. #4 On October 23, 1989, students gathered outside Radio Budapest in Budapest to protest the government's policies. The AVO began firing tear gas into the crowd, and when the students started throwing stones back, the AVO began shooting them.
