Description

The „cemetery memorial” to post-1945 Hungarian history, where the remains of politicians, soldiers, public figures, workers, students and farmers sentenced on false accusations in mock trials and executed after 1945 and 1956 are buried. Their graves are part of the National Graveyard. A symbolic place representing national belonging and opposition to the communist oppression. Prior to 1990, it hosted silent protests against the incumbent power evoking memories of 1956. Nowadays one of the most important sites for commemorating the 1956 revolution and freedom fight.
