Description Antal Urmos was born in 1925 in Temerin, Yugoslavia. He talks about his role in the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. He was helping the revolutionaries transport the flyers on his motor bike, providing them also with typewriters. He had a very good position at the university, but realized he had to join the students because they are fighting for the right reasons. Interesting escape story, across the land with his motor bike. He was blocked by roads several times. Wife and son followed him and met him in Austria. They had no relatives in Canada but were accepted. They came by plane. Talks about settling into life in Canada. One child was born here, both children speak Hungarian well. He is very proud of that. He is very active in the Hungarian Canadian community, especially with the Canadian Hungarian Engineers Association and with the World Federation of Engineers and Architects. He has several awards from Hungary for his humanitarian work.
