Description Alfred Kaman was born in Hungary, and as an adult there worked there as an agronomist. The Communist government, which took over the country following World War II, forced Mr. Kaman to lie about his work. He left Hungary after the 1956 Revolution, arriving in Canada in 1957. Mr. Kaman gives a detailed account of his first impressions of Canada. In Canada, Mr. Kaman entered the tobacco share growing industry, along with many other Hungarian immigrants, in south-western Ontario. He talks about the Hungarian Hall in Delhi, Ontario. Mr. Kaman shares his hopes for his children's future.
