Hungarian Refugees of 1956 in the French Foreign Legion

The documentary film by Béla Nóvé ’Patria nostra’ explores an exciting yet so far hardly researched topic: with no other choice left, many Hungarian minors who fled the country after the 1956 revolution joined the French Foreign Legion to fight for France, inter alia, in the Algerian war. Apart from the film, the collection includes the book written by the filmmaker as well as the unedited camera material, and lots of research materials including interviews, confidential documents of the French military and Hungarian counter intelligence services, archival photographs and footage. The film is available with French and English subtitles.
