A Denver Park That Commemorates a Revolt Against Soviet Oppression

In 1966, the Hungarian Freedom Park was renamed to commemorate the 1956 revolt of Hungarians against Soviet oppression. Two years later a memorial was erected. The memorial depicts a boy attempting to break through an iron curtain. In 1986, the Hungarian Freedom Park was listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing feature of the Denver Park and Parkway System.
