When North Korean students joined the 1956 Hungarian Revolution

A new book explores the untold story of the North Koreans in Hungary

A recently published book -  "From North Korea to Budapest: North Korean Students in the Hungarian Revolution in 1956" - looks at the role of North Korean students in the 1956 anti-Soviet revolution in Hungary.

Using Hungarian archival sources and oral history interviews, Professor Mózes Csoma of Eötvös Loránd University investigated the assistance given by North Korean students to their Hungarian classmates who went out on the streets to fight against Soviet troops.
