Photographer's Note

This is a 2011 photo of the monument which stood on the north end of Kossuth square between 1952 and 2013. It was installed as a replacement of a marble monument which stood on this site since 1927. Matyas Rαkosi, the leader of the government and the Communist party wanted a more upbeat monument with workers and peasants on it instead of pessimistic aristocrats. So this bronze monument was created, Kossuth shown as an orator, was made by Zsigmond Kisfaludi Strobl (1884-1975), an intentionally recognized excellent sculptor, the side figures by the lesser known sculptors Andras Kocsis and Lajos Ungvαri.. The current government decided to restore Kossuth square to its prewar state, they made arrangements to move this monument to Esztergom and recreate the old marble monument , which is now in Dombovαr. I posted a picture of the new stone monument yesterday.
