László Hajdú-Németh tells his harrowing story of escape from Hungary in 1953, during the height of communist repression. His father, and important small-holder (conservative, land-owning) politician before and during WWII had fled after the war and become active in Radio Free Europe which broadcasted from Austria. The family later moved to the U.S. and settled in the active Hungarian community in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Interview conducted by Andrea Lauer Rice and Réka Pigniczky in New Brunswick, New Jersey in May of 2015.
