Photographer's Note

Located on Boston's Liberty square, a 4 m tall bronze statue by the Hungarian American sculptor Gyuri E. Hollosy, erected in 1986 to commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.

The inscription on the base:
TO COMMEMORATE THOSE WHO NEVER SURRENDERED
HUNGARY October 1956,

On a nearby bronze plaque there is a quote from John F. Kennedy's speech on the first anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution:
October 23, 1956, is a day that will live forever in the annals of free men and nations. It was a day of courage, conscience and triumph. No other day since history began has shown more clearly thr men's eternal unquenchable desire to be free, whatever the odds against success, whatever the sacrifice required.
