Looking for family of Karoly Paul KARDOS b. abt 1936 in Hungary, fled abt 1956

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kardos
It is believed Karoly (Charlie) Paul KARDOS came to Canada close to 1956 during the mass exodus from Hungary after the Soviet crackdown.
No names are known of his family in Hungary. Only that he at least had a brother and that Karoly came from the Budapest area to Canada. It is known that he had been married in Hungary and had a son. Again no names are known.
My step-son is the product of a Canadian marriage in 1962 and he would like to find what he can on his Hungarian ancestry. Karoly died in 1964.
A Hungarian phone directory is not of much use since we do not know any names of anyone left in Hungary.
Is there any listing available of those who fled from Hungary around 1956 as refugees? I am hoping that maybe some record of him leaving Hungary or coming to Canada may contain family names in Hungary. I do understand that privacy and protection of those left in Hungary at the time may make this difficult but his son would like to know more about him and his family. Also maybe Karoly's Hungarian family would like to know what became to him.
If anyone is looking for Karoly Kardos or knows how we might find his family please let us know.
