Following the death of Stalin in 1953 some of the East European countries felt that Khrushchev was not going to be such a ruthless leader. In this class, students will look at the reasons behind the uprising in Hungary in 1956, the response from the USSR and the consequences for other communist countries of Eastern Europe. This is a great class for students already studying the Hungarian Uprising or those who have an interest in developing their History knowledge.
