The book, "Nagy Uprising in 1956" written in 1975 by Historian David Irving tells a different story. A narrative not welcome by most.

He drives his conclusion from CIA documents, which most are unaware. When the world learned of the Imre Nagy Uprising in 1956, the narrative promoted anti-Communism rhetoric. But as David learned, it wasn't the case. What he discovered, the revolt started as an anti-Jewish revolution in the first few days. Not an anti-Communist as taught.

The reason for the people’s anger stemmed from how the Jews treated them. They came to their country and,

  1. received the best jobs,

  2. infiltrated civil service,

  3. took control of the secret police,

  4. and political roles.

The Hungarians were now ruled by foreigners. A Jewish population who tortured through the secret police in their homeland.

And to the people of Hungary, it's enough. The Jewish leadership who brought hell on them must end. From this hatred, the revolution burst into flames.
