Béla Édes and Krisztina Kancsal

passportThis Hungarian passport was issued for Béla and Krisztina Édes to allow them to immigrate to Canada. It was issued in December 1956 after the ill-fated Hungarian uprising in October. They arrived in Canada in February 1957. I don’t know how they made their way out of the country or what their journey was like.

Canada was very welcoming to the 30,000 Hungarians who immigrated in 1956 and 1957.
