In this compelling narrative, Dániel Magay serves as a witness to the ideology, history, and legacy of communism, speaking out for the more than 100 million people killed by communism.

A witness to the historic events of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, Daniel won a gold medal for fencing in the Olympic Games that same year. Victory turned to defeat, however, when Soviet tanks rolled back in to Budapest and resumed communist rule; Daniel had to choose whether to stay in his home country or flee to America—a decision that would change the course of his life.

This film is part of a larger educational series by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation to highlight and share the stories of those brave survivors of the crimes of communist regimes.
