Hungary suffered much during WWII. Toward the end of the war it was occupied by the German Army and in the last year of the war over 400,000 Hungarian Jews, Gypsies and other "undesirables" were transported by cattle-cars to Auschwitz and similar extermination camps. The end of the war brought another, similarly awful occupation: the Soviet Army and its barbaric legions occupied the country and stayed for the next five decades. This modern sculpture brings together contemporary composition, mixed media and symbolism. The sculptor, Árpád Mihály, used local materials (wood and wattle) and incredible imagination. The sculpture, consisting of two vertical wooden columns, supports a thatched roof, similar to that seen on churches in Transylvania (Erdely); hammered into the columns are dozens of nails, with the names of the many local victims of the war written on the nail heads.
