In Toronto, Ontario, in March 1979 David Irving (left) visited by appointment Sandor (Alexander) Kopacsi, who had been police chief in Budapest at the time of the anti-Communist uprising of 1956. Kopacsi wrote a famous book giving his inside storyof the event, chillingly titled In the name of the People.
