Burslem-based Richard Pekar, founder of the North Staffordshire Hungarian Association, has made a film of his father’s heroic escape from the horrors of socialism. In 1957 his father crawled through miles of frozen mud, barbed wire and land mines to escape, and eventually settled in Stoke-on-Trent. The Last Train to Budapest was made for £10,000, with a £6,000 National Lottery grant. It’s accompanied by the book Hungarian Blood. The film will be shown at Staffordshire University Film Theatre in August 2010. There are plans for a DVD release.
