This report was sent to London by a British observer in Hungary in 1959.
After the revolt was crushed, Khrushchev appointed Janos Kadar as the new
leader of Hungary.
Kadar imprisoned around 30 000 Hungarians after the revolt. Around 300 were
executed, including Imre Nagy.
One of the biggest factors in Hungarian discontent before the rising was
collectivisation. This meant taking small farmers land away and making them
work in large collective farms. This was very unpopular with Hungary's farmers.
As well as the issues described here, the Party Conference discussed the
uprising. They claimed to have done an extensive investigation into the uprising.
They said the strongest factors in causing the uprising were international
imperialist forces led by the USA.
