‘Goodbye Danube’ illustrates one family’s struggle for life, love, freedom

Boca Raton, FL – A family and two dozen Hungarian citizens fled their country for Austria to escape a communist regime and start anew in author Rosemary Ryan Imregi’s new historical fiction “Goodbye Danube” (published by AuthorHouse).

Benci, Irene and their four children live in Budapest, Hungary. In the fall of 1956, they find themselves, along with the rest of the country, caught in a revolution that is ignited by young men and women. Fed up with a communist regime that has ruled since World War II, they flew to escape and met several deaths along the way. Once they arrive safely in Austria, everyone rejoices—that is whoever is still alive.

“The story is not just about the revolution, but how it affects people’s lives even after they have found the freedom they fought for,” Imregi says.

After a thorough study and firsthand look into the land of Budapest, Imregi relays a poignant real-life story through the characters in “Goodbye Danube,” bringing deeper resonance of the effects of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution.
