Laszlo Karoly PETERFY, Engineer: (1933-2005)
Student who took up arms in the 1956 Hungarian uprising fled for Austria in a truck full of guns only to end up in a prison camp. He left for liberty in Canada
By Catherine CULLEN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Thursday, October 27, 2005, Page S7
Montreal -- Challenges were nothing new to Laszlo PETERFY. By the time the 23-year-old Hungarian arrived in Canada, he had already survived bombings, persecution, an uprising and imprisonment. Adjusting to life in a country that he could not have found on a map a few weeks earlier was a challenge, but nothing quite so dramatic as what he had endured to get to Canada in the first place.
It was 1956 and Hungarian discontent with the ruling Communist Party had finally boiled over. About 100,000 protestors took the streets of Budapest. The police opened fire and protest transformed into a revolution that would leave more than 30,000 people dead.
A student engineer at the University of Sopron, Mr. PETERFY and his Friends decided to flee to Austria -- but not without first putting up a fight. Trouble was, they had no idea what to do, he wrote in his unpublished memoirs. Soviet troops were advancing toward Sopron so the students decided to intercept them outside town. "In retrospect, we picked the worst possible place. As it happened, our armour-piercing cannon was disabled and the first Russian tank simply drove over it and crushed it. Nobody fired a single shot, and just as well, because we, armed with rifles only, would not have had a chance. We were disarmed and sent back to the city."
Not one to give up, Mr. PETERFY and his Friends commandeered a truck and some weapons. They meant to attack the Soviet troops one last time. As it turned out, the enemy never showed up and the students arrived at the border in a truck still loaded with hand grenades, rifles and ammunition. Not surprisingly, the Austrians were less than thrilled. Their armed arrival meant they were separated from other refugees and placed behind barbed wire in a camp that no one was permitted to leave.
Mr. PETERFY was released only after he and many of his Friends accepted an offer from Canada to continue their education in Toronto or Vancouver. At the time, he neither knew precisely where Canada was, nor did he speak any English.
"We arrived with nothing but the clothes on our back, but we carried our cultural background," he wrote. He and other Hungarian refugees settled into a house in Chorley Park, in Toronto's fashionable Rosedale district. They were given a crash course in English, but it was Canadian behaviour they found baffling. He was particularly perplexed by the classroom attitudes of students who would interrupt the professor and prop their feet up on chairs. It was unlike the discipline he had known at home. Eventually, he adjusted and, in time, he was able to visit Hungary nearly every year to see the family he left behind.
Born in 1933, as Adolf Hitler was rising to power in Germany, Laszlo Karoly PETERFY was the eldest of three children. At first, his childhood was peaceful and he dreamed of being an engineer. He was fascinated by his mechanical toys, like the plane that dropped bombs. By 1944, the war had become real and his hometown was bombed by the advancing Russians. Caught unaware, the family did not make it to the shelter behind the house. This was the first of many good strokes of luck in life for Laszlo, because the shelter was obliterated. The family fled to Germany for the remainder of the war and his father, an officer in the Hungarian army, which fought on the side of the Germans, was captured and made a prisoner of war in France.
After the war, the family returned to Sopron, only to find a Communist regime had taken over. The PETERFYs were declared "enemies of the working class" and Laszlo was denied a university education. Instead, he went out to work but never abandoned his dream. Two years later, he saw his opportunity. "A not-too-bright, but friendly manual labourer" had been made local Communist Party official and Mr. PETERFY casually mentioned to him that he wanted to attend university. Apparently unaware that it was his political duty to prevent an untrustworthy person from attending university, the official agreed to give him a letter of reference, but confessed he could not write very well. So Mr. PETERFY composed his own letter of recommendation and the official simply signed it.
It was to be many years before he graduated -- and not from the University of Sopron but from the University of Toronto. Mr. PETERFY first worked as a surveyor in remote corners of Canada and then in 1961 he met Ann KORONYA, another Hungarian refugee. He decided to settle down, took a job with the city of Toronto and married Ann.
His years in Canada unfolded happily, despite the hardship early in his life, said his daughter Kathy. "He was very philosophical about everything.... He never complained; he never looked back."
Laszlo Karoly PETERFY was born in Pusztaföldvár, Hungary, on July 26, 1933. He died of prostate cancer on August 28, 2005, in Toronto. He was 72. He is survived by his wife, Ann, sister Katalin and daughter Kathy.

Oakville man dies in marathon
Two other runners have died in Toronto race in the last four years
witnesses: say it took too long to get collapsed man to hospital
By Donovan VINCENT, Staff Reporter
For the second year in a row, a runner has died in the Toronto Marathon.
The unidentified 36-year-old Oakville man was running in the half-marathon yesterday morning with thousands of others and collapsed moments after crossing the finish line on Queen's Park Circle, just south of Hoskin Ave.
Three people have died in the event in the last four years.
Medical personnel working with the race rushed to his aid, first trying cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, then a defibrillator. As an ambulance tried to get through the crowd, he was placed on a stretcher while health workers continued trying cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and administering oxygen. He was carried on a stretcher to Wellesley St. and then to Mount Sinai Hospital with no vital signs, Toronto Emergency Medical Services said.
A number of witnesses: said it took too long for the man to be put in an ambulance and taken to hospital.
"It did take a long time," said Janet DOGON of Thornhill. She was at the finish line because her daughter and a friend ran the half-marathon
Race director Jay GLASSMAN said some members of the medical team in place for the race -- 30 registered nurses and about seven doctors -- attended to the man and there was an ambulance on site.
GLASSMAN said he can't comment on the time it took to get the man to hospital because he doesn't have all the details.
Last year 42-year-old Scott LABRON of Guelph, a married father of four, died minutes before crossing the finish line. He was also running in the half-marathon. It's suspected he suffered a heart attack, but no cause of death was revealed after test results.
In 2001, 50-year-old Aurora businessman Bob HARTWELL, who had run the Boston Marathon several times, died of a heart attack running in the full marathon.
"Things like this happen, unfortunately. It's statistically rare when it happens," GLASSMAN said, adding big marathons like those in Boston and New York have had fatalities.
"I went to watch the New York Marathon years ago and two people died," he said.
Before the race, organizers were expecting about 2,500 for the 42.195-kilometre marathon, about 5,000 in the half-marathon, up to 1,500 for the 5-kilometre and around 1,200 for the relay. The marathon and half-marathon begin at Mel Lastman Square in North York.
GLASSMAN said the deaths are "no reflection" on the Toronto Marathon course. "There are marathons at high altitudes, low altitudes, in good weather in bad weather," he said. "We had good conditions. It was windy, which was a hindrance, but that's about it."
Runners must sign a waiver before taking part.
But with thousands of runners in the race "it's not feasible to have them all go to a cardiologist or get a physical before the race," GLASSMAN said.
The Toronto Waterfront Marathon, which staged its fourth annual race last month, has had no fatalities.
David CHERUIYOT of Kenya finished first in the main event for the men with an official time of 2: 17:12.2. Rito Regules JARDON of Toluca, Mexico, was second and Danny KASSAP of Toronto third.
A Canadian came first in the women's marathon. Lioudmila KORTCHAGUINA of Thornhill captured the women's title with a time of 2: 37:17.7, ahead of Kathryn MacNAMARA of Dundas and Isabelle LEDROIT of Montreal.
First place in the men's and women's marathon came with a cheque for $15,000.
