The Heroes of the Peoples Power Memorial

The Heroes of the People's Power Memorial

This monument honors the Hungarians that fought against the 1956 uprising against the Soviets. Couldn't have been too popular a memorial in Budapest.

Setting aside content and message. I kind of like some of the Soviet's bold 1950's design style. I think it is important that some of these eastern-bloc statues are kept, irrespective of which 'side' they represent, because none of us should forget our shared history.

Certainly has the Soviet genre art style. Super gray tones and crisp details! V

A very interesting memorial, well framed in your photograph. I am surprised that this was not torn down, but I am glad it wasn't because it is certainly fascinating to see this. "V"
