  • In the era of fake news, old school propaganda, it is important to see two very different perspectives on history in close proximity. Make up your own mind....  more »
  • A monument and all personal belongings. Suppression of the Hungarians in the turbulent years 100,000 1920-1945 missing persons. The monument is for the Hungarians as commemoration of the German occupation and murders. But ...... the Hungarians claim that the occupier is not the murderer and have yourself pamphlets, photos and old memories. The crazy thing is that the Government accepts this takes away not so????

  • This memorial has got a lot of protests from all citizens, who think that this is a history forging. The memorial itself is terrible. It is guarded by police as the protester wants to demolish.  more »

  • The statue is incredibly powerful. It depicts a guardian angel holding the world (symbolizing a weak and seemingly peaceful Hungary that was unable to fend for itself) being attacked by an extremely large and vicious black eagle (Nazi Germany) and is meant to show that Germany Took over and committed the atrocities during WW2. History says that Hungary supported the Nazi's and thus huge controversy for those that want Hungary to acknowledge their part in it and take responsibility. I'm no historian, I wasn't there. So I can't comment on the historical accuracy of the claims. But I do think it's inadvertently caused more talk and dialogue than any accurate statue could have created. So I think that it created exactly what a rememberence statue should have done. Even though the Hungarian civilians want it torn down.
  • Bla-bla-bla... How can modern government do such bullshit.. look photos, that's installation against this monument, made by local civilians, who had lost there relatives murdered by the nazi government of Hungary.. no occupation, when you were the most faithful ally of the Hitler till the end..
  • Very dramatic monument, but extremely controversial! A more humble politically correct monument would be much more appropriate!
  • There is a huge controversy over the main memorial, but the really interesting aspect of the visit is the protest exhibition, just across the street, next to the fountain, with real artifacts of victims. This is the real tribute to the victims.
  • The statue and the fountain look nice but whet I read about all the fuzz about it I felt confused.
