The OBSERVER

No ordinary man was Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty. Persecuted, tortured and imprisoned for standing up for religious rights in Hungary under the Nazis and Communists, he, in his own words, "would persist in the struggle, with God's help, even if it cost me my life." Last week's column retold the story of his trial and brutal treatment 63 years ago this February when he was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Communist People's Court in Budapest, or Marxist Democracy, after World War II. An inspiration of courage and faith the world over, he was certainly also the inspiration for naming the high school that existed for many years in Dunkirk, which closed in 1979.
