PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 16 - THE FIRST RUMBLINGS

were no longer forced to attend the Communist Party seminars against their will. The over-all picture seemed to indicate that some form of National Communism might take over in Hungary, as well as in Poland and other Eastern European states, that it might develop sooner or later into parliamentary democracy.
I could distinguish three distinct threads among the skein of rumors and fragmentary news. They were the stresses and struggles within the Soviet body politic; the mounting pressure from the Western world; and the reawakening of nationalism within the satellite countries.
Soon more exciting news filtered into the prison from outside. We learned of the Poznan riots, which proved that violent outbreaks could occur at any time.
The summer of 1956 arrived. Most of the Social Democrats had already been freed, along with some other non-Communist prisoners, but the turn of the former Smallholders Party members had not yet arrived.
An important piece of news followed a few days later. Anna Kethly, the foremost Social Democratic leader, who had left our prison in November, 1954, had already been asked to join the Government. According to rumors, however, she had declined this offer, demanding first the release of all political prisoners, and also other changes guaranteeing political freedom, even the multiparty system.
Within a few weeks, other important news followed. Several years ago, influential writers and Communist intellectuals had formed an organization called the Petofi Circle. Under the leadership of Tibor Dery they now became very outspoken and were attacking Rakosi in open debates. Then came the bombshell. Rakosi himself, the Hungarian Stalin, had been forced to resign. This was almost too good to believe, but it was true. He was succeeded by a close associate, Gero, whose prestige was not as great, but whose policies were not essentially different.
