Hungary is a very beautiful country. Budapest is called the pearl of Danube. I have tried examining the history of Hungary: In 1241 – 1242, the kingdom received a major blow with the Mongol (Tatar) Invasion. In 1396, Hungary is defeated by the Battle
of Nicopolis with Ottoman Empire. It was also greatly damaged by the Hussite Wars (1419 – 1439). In 1526, lost by the battle of Moherch, King Lajos II was killed in battle. In 1541 Buda fell, as the result, two-thirds of the eastern and central parts were dominated by the Ottoman Empire, one third of the northwestern part was divided and controlled by Austria of the Habsburg family.
In the March revolution of 1848, the independence movements instructed by Lajos Kossuth failed due to the intervention of the Russian imperial army. Hungary became a defeated country in the First World War that Austria began for 1914 through 1918. As a result, its territory had been reduced to one-thirds.
In World War II, Hungary joined the Axis countries under pressure from Nazi Germany and fought against the Soviet Union. After the war, the country was incorporated into the Soviet Union.
The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 was a nationwide revolt against the government of the Hungarian People’s Republic and its Soviet-imposed policies, lasting from 23 October until 10 November 1956.
On 4 November, a large Soviet force invaded Budapest and other regions of the country. The Hungarian resistance continued until 10 November. Over 2,500 Hungarians were killed in the conflict, and 200,000 Hungarians fled as refugees.
Mass arrests and denunciations continued for months thereafter.
In spite of such suffering history, they carried out Pan-European Picnic on the Austrian-Hungarian border near Sopron, on 19 August 1989. More than 600 East Germans fled to the West across the Hungary Austria border. It was a historic case to lead to Soviet Union collapse later.
I am moved by the courageous actions of the Hungarian and respect them.
