Who wrote the poem that begins "What have we not done for this country"?

About 15 years ago I read a popular history (in the sense of popular science, not popular politics) of the 20th century which includes a short poem that I believe went as follows: > What have we not done for this country? > Some of us gave speeches; > Others gave our lives. This poem has stayed with me for years and I would like to know the name of its author. I can no longer remember the name of the book I read it in, and Google has been unhelpful in finding a source. I remember the poem was translated from its original language and believe the poet was Hungarian, though I'm not 100% sure about that. It was definitely written in the 20th century and it is definitely from a country that was behind the iron curtain. Please help!
