All RFE Hungarian broadcasts from October 22 to November 12, 1956, are now available online, thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Oral History Department of the Hungarian Szechenyi National Library, in cooperation with the Hoover Institution Library and Archives and RFE/RL. They are available here: http://www.oszk.hu/en/news/hungarian-october-new-website/
This is a beta version of the new web site; comments are welcome and should be addressed to Bea Lillin at NSL (email@example.com). The web site carries both audio recordings and transcriptions of the RFE Hungarian broadcasts, along with other audio-visual material on the Hungarian Revolution.
The RFE audio files were retrieved from low-quality, slow speed transmitter “log” recordings – the so-called “Koblenz” files. The provenance and retrieval of these unique recordings is described in http://www.rferl.org/a/off_mic_ross_johnson_hungarian_revolution/2209996.html and in an appendix to the book by Dr. A. Ross Johnson: Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty; the CIA Years and Beyond, “Appendix, A Note on the History of the 1956 RFE Hungarian Broadcast Archives,” pp. 129-130. They are the authentic record of all RFE Hungarian broadcasts during the Hungarian Revolution.
