Photo of the Martyrs Monument in Memento Park, Budapest, Hungary. The Martyrs Monument is one of 42 pieces of art from the Communist era in Hungary (1945 to 1989). A work done in stone by Kallo Viktor in 1960, it stood in Koztarsasag Square in Budapest until 1989. After the fall of the Communist regime in Hungary, it was removed from the city along with other Communist-era statuary. In 1993, it was displayed again in the open-air Memento Park along with statues of famous personalities such as Engels, Lenin, and Marx.
