Description In this interview Ivan Halasz De Beky talks about the flow of Hungarian people to Canada—before and after the Second World War, and following the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. He explains the nature of the social hierarchy in Hungarian society. Dr. DeBeky talks about the formation of what he calls a 'special kind' of rightist views in the Hungarian Canadian community, and the motivation behind the creation of TANU, a community newspaper. The goal was to present an objective view of the Hungarian reality, including the left/right dichotomy in immigrant communities in general. He talks about TANU's position in the relationship between the immigrant community and the home country.
