PART II - THE VOLCANO ERUPTS
CHAPTER 13 - THE HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE

accept his offer. I started down the street walking toward his place which was in another part of the city. The street was empty except for a few frantic people. I heard the noise of gunfire and the stray bullets hitting the walls. I was too bitter to worry about personal safety. You are all alone.... Once again I realized this. You are all alone, and so is your country, I thought. Fate decided to change everything overnight. Yesterday all was hope, today everything is lost. My friend received me warmly and introduced me to his family. I was so depressed that I could hardly respond to their kindness. All I could think of was this pathetically brief spell of freedom. I tried to see what it meant in the light of history. From the rational point of view I knew that it made no sense, but at times heroism can do more than reason. Whatever historians think of these young heroes who dared battle the Soviet giant and fight Communist tyranny, they will always be heroic to me as David challenging Goliath. Probably the leaders of the world will be angry at these heroic children that they decided to take the initiative into their own hands instead of following the preplanned schedule, I thought. Maybe they will be angry at the Hungarians for causing all these complications. Whatever they may think, I felt that the saga of the Hungarian Revolution and the fight for freedom would become part of the human legend, like the Battle of Thermopylae.
In a world becoming more and more materialistic, these youngsters had written pages of superb heroism.
The telephone at my friend's place kept ringing. Barricades were erected all over the city, callers informed him. Freedom Fighters made last ditch stands against gigantic Soviet tanks. Then terrible news came. The hospital where Lonci and Alicia had sought shelter was surrounded by Soviet troops. The Freedom Fighters were inside defending the hospital, and a doctor, whom I knew, told me that the women were safe. Even through the receiver, however, I could hear gunfire and the sounds of battle from the hospital, which became a fortress.
