and it lasted about thirteen days.

The manifestation began

for high school and university students, seconded

throughout society it had a huge impact world , questioned the established system for
Union of Sovietic Socialist Republic (URSS).
The ideology of rebellion it has always been discussed because the political
analyst have considered that it could be due to the search of true and humanity socialism;
or to break nexus with Sovietic Union or a third option that was returned to the capitalist
In any case, leaving aside political reasons, the rebellion sought to break the

The Brigde of a freedom

As a result of the Revolution of 56 many Hungarians they were persecuted by the

political police, prompting the need for immigration cases and more desperate to flee to
neighboring countries Hungary, for example Austria.
James Michener wrote in 1957 The Bridge at Andau chronicling de Hungarian

coming soon, and the hall Carlos Cruz Diez will be symbol of welcome to a free and peaceful
