Freedom Calling!


Like the current Russian incursion of Ukraine, our latest episode takes us back to 1956 when Russia invaded Hungary.

Producer Karen Heaps brings the tale of her father, Leo Heaps, and his buddy, Jussi Brainin, to life. The two men, posing as journalist and photo journalist, braved the dangers of the Austro-Hungarian border to rescue desperate Hungarians seeking safety and refuge in foreign lands.
