Frank Iszak's Memoir, Free for All to Freedom Published

San Diego, California (PressExposure) August 02, 2011 -- On July 13, 1956, there was a daring escape that made headlines throughout the world, and turned hijackers to heroes. Now one of those Hungarian students is telling the inside story of what brought about the hijacking - from the crushing realities of living under Soviet occupation to the incredible life or death struggle inside the plane. While this story took place 55 years ago, the longing for freedom is timeless, and when denied this longing can become untenable. To hear Frank Iszak talk about the events of his life is to hear an eerie resemblance to today's headlines: "We had no choice. We needed to live our lives freely, because without freedom life was not worth living anymore. It's a story that resonates with current world events."

"Life under oppression is rarely narrated with any accuracy, because the oppressors control virtually every means of communication. Under the collective communist terror (Stalin, Mao and their henchmen), untold millions were annihilated without the world even realizing it, certainly not recording it as the genocide that it was. I hope in telling the truth of the conditions we were forced to live under, my book will give voice to those longing for freedom today, and a greater appreciation to those who have it."

Free for All to Freedom, then, is a story of hope. From the seven Hungarian students who would trust each other with their lives; to historic, world-changing events that would serendipitously aid the day of their escape; to the students' first true taste of freedom - one marvels at their destiny and good fortune. Ultimately, Free for All to Freedom is a triumph of the human spirit that will remind every reader of the gifts that freedom brings.

Free for All to Freedom is available at in Paperback ($12.95) or Kindle eBook ($7.95) formats.
