The Petöfi Cercle was a discussion forum of the Communist Youth League (DISZ). Named after the hero-poet Sandor Petöfi , the poet of the Revolution of 1848, it attracted intellectuals critical of the Communist party-line. The meeting of June 27,1956, on the government's press- and information policy, took place at the Budapest Officers' Club. Tibor Tardos, well-known columnist expelled from the Communist Party the previous year, addressed the Cercle.
