Description Peter Karolyi was born in Gyor. He was a young student in grade 4, when the uprising happened in 1956. Interesting opinion about Hungarians, not necessarily positive. Came by boat to Canada. Arrived in Montreal with 2 sisters and parents. He had a relatively good life in Hungary before 1956. Came to Canada with one of the first ships that arrived in December 1956 (Arosa Sun or Arosa Star). The family was interviewed by television journalists. Does not have a lot of Hungarian friends, he finds them too different. He always tried to become very Canadian. He thinks it is very important to tell his story with his life experiences because other people might learn from his mistakes. He is a businessman and runs engineering firm in Toronto.
