Y Holocaust Memorials Y






This Holocaust Memorial is located in a plaza behind the Dohany Street Synagogue in Budapest (the largest active synagogue in Europe and the second largest in the world).

The memorial above, which was designed by sculptor Imre Varge, was erected in 1990.

The memorial is made of granite and steel and was made in the shape of a weeping willow tree. Each leaf contains the name of a Holocaust victim from Budapest.


Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish diplomat who was able to issue thousands of passes to Hungarian Jews which protected them against deportation.

The memorial above the left is the Raoul Wallenberg memorial or monument.

This monument was erected in 1987 in a small park named Szent Istvan Park, with Raoul Wallenberg portrayed between two large stone walls.


Memorial at Budapest's
Kozma utca cemetery.


"Let us remember

our dear innocent children of Eger,

our dear blood,

who were dragged away on June 7th, 1944

and died a martyrs' death."


“The stone within this wall weeps.

 The tears stream from my eyes 

for the devastation of my people.

 In memory of 2000 martyrs of Gyongyos 

and our 600,000 brethren who were tortured, 

suffocated and killed, killed and killed 

during the years 5701-5705 within the country 

and beyond its borders in death camps, snowfields, 

on road and on riverbanks because of merciless, 

blood-thirsty hatred. 

Peace be on their unmarked graves and scattered ashes!

 Their memory lives forever!”

The memorial is located in Szombathely, a town in western Hungary near the Austrian border. It is on Rakoczi Street, situated next to the former synagogue (now used as a concert hall.) More than 4200 Jews once lived in this town and its surrounds before World War II began, but most all were sent to Auschwitz.
