ABSTRACT
In this article, the author narrates the East German revolt. On that evening of June 16, when we first learned of the East German workers' revolt, we were for a Moment startled. The Soviet troops and tanks advanced to restore Communist power and the story faded from the front pages. We turned to other events with a sigh of regret that this courageous uprising had to fail. It is true that the uprising was short-lived and has been put down by force of arms, by Soviet tanks and Communist firing squads.
