RUSSIAN ARTILLERY. My father Kornel Vadasz passed away in 1996. I found these slides summer 2015. Kornel was active during the revolution. He was a social democratic politician who took part in rewriting, printing and distributing the 16 demands which the revolution was based on. During the fighting he headed a group who was called in to “clean up” AVO and Russian strong holds. He spent 3 years in a communist prison, was condemned to death, escaped and made it to Sweden.
With the Russian Revolution of for the first time in history an entire nation is governed by a communist system. The posters from the first years of this government show revolutionary zeal and optimism of building a new society.
