PART III - SEARCHING FOR HELP
CHAPTER 2 - THE HAGUE, PARIS, LONDON

same day we were invited for lunch at the home of Sir Cullum Welch, the Lord Mayor of London, whose efforts to help Hungarian refugees were well-known.
The next few days in London were unforgettable. I met many leading public personalities and quite a few old friends. I was once again impressed by the British, their patience, and their sense of humor.
Catherine insisted on making friends with the elevator man and traveled up and down at least fifty times a day.
During the five days I spent in London, we never mentioned the Suez incident but often thought about it. Many Westerners presumed that we Hungarians blamed the British-French-Israel action for the suppression of our Revolution. This sounds logical to persons who don't live in Eastern Europe. To those of us brought up in that particular corner of the world, the whole action seemed like part of an over-all strategic plan. After it was over, we felt that if those who decided international policies had more imagination, then neither Hungarian freedom nor the prestige of Westerners in the Near East would have been lost. In our eyes this loss of prestige had helped a semi-Communist dictator to gain power.
A few days later we said good-bye to our British hosts. We shook hands warmly with my poet secretary, who said:
" Tell the U. N. everything. Don't try to be nice. Don't forget our little Hungary."
In a few minutes we were on the plane starting for the New World.
I felt very strange. This plane would take me to a big, strange land, which I did not know much about and expected so much of. I was crossing another big border. After seven years in prison, it was strange to cross so many borders. From prison to freedom in my own country, from Hungary to Europe with all its friendly compassion, were big steps, but they were familiar to me. Now I was leaving my Motherland in a broad sense, the
