Just one of the 300 pictures I took last month but I can't find anything about this beautiful stone memorial in Esztergom, HU. I googled, Wikipedia, contacted HU visitor bureau and the Budapest fine arts museum but still no luck.

It's located off the centrum and on other 3 sides of this monument are names. (My family's was not.) There were candles and wreathes placed here - I know it is a very special monument and would like to find more information. Thanks for any help!

    This is from a memorial for the victims of WWI

    Here is a description found here

    http://www.kozterkep.hu/~/5320/hosi_emlekmu_esztergom_lanyi_dezso_1927.html


    "It was put up in Heroes' Square to the memory of those killed in World War I, in 1926. The 10 m high stone memorial is the work of the sculptor Dezs? Lányi (1879-1961). On the top of the obelisk there we find an urn surrounded by four eagles. On the fundament there is a lion protecting the Hungarian Crown and Shield. On the frontage we can see a mourning male figure on his knees."

    Thank you so much! I haven't had much luck w/the hu websites so appreciate what you found so quickly too! I thought it might be WWI because of the art-deco style of sculpture. It is so beautiful. By the way - I have 2 ancestors who came to America orphaned and basically we know they were from Eastern Europe but haven't been able to dig deep enough to find out. THANK YOU! Thank you for the research and will enjoy the other pictures.

    Thank you - and I love your profile picture. I'm a graphic artist - but old school - it takes me awhile to figure out how to change photos and art. You must take some great photos - I would love to see them. The next post is the Gyor WWI. Any info you can provide is appreciated.
