Yes, we heard about this when we were in Budapest and thought it was a great idea. I suggest we do it a little differently. Place them in parks and make sure the history about the person and time is told. It could be a great educational opportunity for everyone.
- I really believe a park or a museum would be a good thing. We NEED to learn from the past. Simply removing the statues keeps us and future generations from being able to learn those lessons.
- I would think a modest display could be kept, but the history needs to be displayed correctly, or it would defeat the purpose. There are museums throughout the US that could easily display an area for these. A couple of alternatives….drop them in the struggling reef areas to help create gardens fro coral and the like…might not be the best environmental choice…however, if it’s meltable, melt them all down and create a symbol of unity and togetherness…
- Germany, too, preserves some of it horrific past, in order to remind its people why some of the world is still critical of the country; Germany does not deny its sins of the past, nor does it glorify them. To educate, to ensure it will never happen again, that is the purpose. While in Munich, we visited with our former exchange student, who suggested that we visit Dacau. She had visited there as a young high school student. We were impressed with how it was presented, honest, respectful, solemn … yet hopeful for a future of peace and harmony
My thoughts exactly! It keeps the past as a reminder. There are some great statues as artwork in that collection from Nagy Imre as well. Today this all serves as a reminder of the past, and preserves for visitors some sense of what people in Hungary in Communist times were dealing with.
We visited Memento Park a few years ago. It’s definitely not close to the downtown area, but an easy bus ride to the park. Interesting place and good reminder of what the city endured. These symbols that some believe continue to represent the negative side of humans reside all over the world – calling out just the Southern US seems to ignore history across the world.
