Amidst a lot of controversy, the German Occupation Memorial was finally erected. The Hungarians did not agree with the building of this memorial and hence it came up just as it was least expected. Located at Liberty Square, this place is a disheartening reminder of the ordeal that Hungarians had to go through during the German invasion. About 2/3rd of the Hungarian population- the Jewish population was wiped out during this invasion and about 1 million Hungarians lost their lives to the hands of the Germans.

  • This monument was created by Hungary's corrupt right-wing government as an attempt to rewrite history. Hungary was one of the first countries in Europe to pass anti-Jewish laws in the 1920s. When the Germans occupied Hungary, they were warmly welcomed into the country; Hungary did not try to fight back. This shameful monument is a complete lie. It should be torn down immediately and be replaced with a monument that accurately represents history.

  • I love water fountains... the crow is definitely one to see

  • Memorial and fountain, it is really nice to talk a walk around the area, beautiful park, watching the fountain and the people playing around it during the summer days.

  • Pathetic attempt to falsify history. It's pathetic, funny, and ridiculous simultaneously to realize that even the so-called artist who created this disgraceful object was confused and had no idea what he's doing. An archangel, a turul (a hawk-like mythological bird), and a crown without any apparent connection/correlation .... Monument of shame of Hungary.

  • Hitler occupied Hungary without a gunshot... it's a kitchy statue which tries to change history. I feel ashamed. It shouldn't have been made.
