PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 12 - A WINDOW OPENS ON THE WORLD

In the days that followed, we succeeded in picking up additional fragments of information about the changes which had occurred. Apparently the Imre Nagy rumor was true. In his inaugural speech as Prime Minister, he had criticized the Secret Police, and announced that concentration camps would be abolished, and that all deportation orders would be revoked.
He had also announced that all political prisoners, nonCommunists as well as Communist deviationists, who had been convicted in closed court trials, would be freed, and their cases reopened. Even more sensational was the rumor which credited him with saying that, from time to time, the peasants could leave the collective farms. Allegedly, he had also promised more consumer goods than heavy industrial production, and he had told artisans and small businessmen that they would once more be given the right to operate without state control. All of this sounded fantastic.
Soon, however, a rash of new rumors spread. According to these stories, Rakosi was far from admitting defeat and had claimed that Nagy was taking a dangerous course. Other reports claimed that peasants were rebelling in the provinces, and that Communist Party secretaries had been beaten by the angry populace.
I had a new cellmate at that time-Eugene, a chemical engineer and a real old-timer. He was a Bohemian with a heart of gold, and a highly individualistic person. We understood each other very well indeed. We exchanged language lessons, with Eugene teaching me English, while I taught him French. Our English textbook was still the Encyclopaedia Britannica, and with Eugene's help I began to understand the more difficult passages. One evening, after one of my long discussions with a visiting aristocrat, Eugene and I were chatting.
