In reality, Laszlo Tokes was a man at the right place at the right time. and the congregation that supported him was responsible for lighting the spark that flared into the Romanian revolution. The value in the book is being made aware of the plight of Hungarians in Romania during the communist years and in understanding the build-up of tensions in Timisoara that led a few brave members of Laszlo's congregation to stand up to the oppression of communism, knowing full well that it might be a life-or-death stance. For it was their defiance more than Lazlo's that lit the fuse

Inside Ceausescu’s Police State. Ceausescu’s Romania was a unique case in Socialist Eastern Europe. From 1965, Ceausescu endeavoured to establish a dynastic form of Socialism; heavily reliant on his own ‘cult of personality’ with power concentrated in the hands of his close relatives including his wife Elena and their son Nicu. Here the prosecutor accuses Nicolae Ceausescu of ‘Crimes against the peopl. enocid. rmed attack on the peopl. estruction of buildings and state institutions, undermining of the national economy’. The prosecution makes disturbing reading, Nicolae and Elena do not acknowledge their crimes and the reality of their circumstances, despite being accused of killing children and leaving people with ‘nothing to eat, no heating, no electricity’.
