Hungary reborn

Miklos Kerekfy is a student in Budapest who was born in 1989.

That year was marked by the fall of the Berlin Wall but also the reburial of a Hungarian hero, Imre Nagy, signalling the steady demise of communism.

He reports on how 1989 was a major turning point for Hungary and for his own generation.

This audio is part of a series of eight cross-generational interviews from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Hungary, Russia, Poland, Romania, Tajikistan and Cuba.
