Description

Budapest was firmly placed under Soviet occupation after WWII and only avoided the brutal embrace of Communism in 1989. As propaganda instruments, hundreds of monuments honoring Marx, Lenin and Engels were erected. These monolithic reminders of years of repression were taken down when the Soviet Union dissolved in 1989 and relocated to Memento Park on the south-western outskirts of the capital.
