The photo documents real history that no political leader can deny:

The spontaneous national uprising that began 12 days before in Hungary was viciously crushed by Soviet tanks and troops on November 4, 1956. Thousands were killed and wounded and nearly a quarter-million Hungarians fled the country.

The question we in Europe are asking is perfectly clear:

Do you really want to be friends with a despots, war criminals, and thieves, or do you want to be part of an open dynamic and democratic Europe?
