PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 3 - DOWN AND ALMOST OUT

"Look, Kovago, you know anyway that you will be hanged. Why don't you make a clear slate, and I'll see to it that you get better food and more of it, too. We'll also give you an extra blanket. Perhaps you'll get some clean clothes. In any case, those boils on your neck and your body are no good. That means a lot of unnecessary suffering, Kovago. Think it over and confess."
" But, sir, I'm ready to confess," I said haltingly. "I told you that as Mayor of Budapest I was anxious to build a close liaison between the capital and the West. I wanted to get a loan from the Western nations, and I am a fanatical believer in Western ideologies. I believe in Western democracy. Why don't you convict me for those things?"
" Stop that gibbering," he barked. "What we want to know are the details of the military conspiracy which you were preparing ."
" As far as the Adorjan-Kakukk(1) organization is concerned-"
" Leave that conspiracy alone!" he interrupted. "That's only of minor importance. What we want you to confess is how you conspired with the Chief of Staff, General Solyom(2), and the other traitorous generals. We want to know everything about the military conspiracy you were preparing, and all your other crimes as well."
And so it went. One day, I suddenly remembered that the day after I resigned as mayor, the roof of the most important church in Budapest, the Bazilika, caught fire. "This could be a good hunch," I assured myself. "It's impossible not to make a confession in this place. Why don't I try to take some initiative in directing the line this interrogation is taking?"

1 This was a conspiracy plan of former Smallholders Party politicians. For two years they talked about ways and means of overthrowing Communism. The Communist secret police discovered these men and they were arrested.
2 Laszlo Solyom was a career officer in the Hungarian Army prior to World War II. After the war he became police chief of Budapest and soon joined the Communist Party. Returning to the army, he rose to become a four-star general. As a Communist army general, he was arrested by the secret police on a charge of conspiring against the regime with pro-Tito tendencies.
