PART II - THE VOLCANO ERUPTS
CHAPTER 5 - "EVERY HUNGARIAN IS WITH US"

We felt a wonderful pride. We recognized then the high principles and the nobility of our people.
We arrived at Deak Square. On the top of the police headquarters building there was a gigantic Soviet star. People eyed the hated symbol helplessly.
" Let's take down the Red Star. Let's take down the Red Star," I heard Peter shout.
People took up the slogan, chanting. The crowd grew, insisting that the Soviet symbol be removed. Some police officers appeared at the window, talking to the people.
" Don't talk so much," someone said. "Let's pull down that star right now."
Suddenly on the top of the building a lone figure appeared. He was climbing toward the star. The crowd greeted him with loud roars of enthusiasm. He was tugging at the star while the crowd encouraged him. Then, spontaneously, many hundreds of people took off their hats and sang the National Anthem. Slowly the star began to move. The man worked feverishly. The star was well attached and difficult to move. A foreign movie-camera man started to make a newsreel of the crowd. Peter stepped in front of me, murmuring, "There's no need for you to appear in that film. Who knows what will happen to it?"
Finally, the star started to topple, and it fell the six floors to the pavement. Everyone cheered. Peter and I continued our survey of the streets. Stars were falling all over the city, Soviet stars, that is. The national flags hanging from the buildings all had a round hole in the middle. The hated hammer and sickle was cut out, like a cancerous spot. This was another symbol of the Revolution which we will never forget.
The mood of the people was exciting. The determination of the people was a powerful force ready to sweep away any government which did not act fast enough. The wrath of the people had turned against every reminder of the hated Soviet oppression. A bonfire of Communist books had been lighted.
