The poem, “To Hungarians” was written by Zbigniew Herbert, one of the best-known and most translated post-war Polish poets and essayists.

The short poem is essentially a cry of solidarity of the Poles with the Hungarian freedom fighters, also encompassing rage and frustration over not being able to help them.

“We look form here upon the flames/We look at death itself.”
