He was a man who sacrificed his whole life to the freedom fight. His cradle didn’t rock in Hungary, didn’t speak the language, but in 1848 Józef Bem, a Polish soldier came to Hungary, and he became the commander of the Transylvanian army. He fought shoulder to shoulder with the Hungarians for their freedom and led the Hungarian “honvéd” to a lot of victorious battle. His soldiers called him Bem Apó, Guffer Bem since he wasn’t a young man, 55 years old already. After the fall of the Hungarian freedom fight, he emigrated to Turkey.
This statue preserves us the memory of this beloved dauntless army leader.

Józef Zachariasz Bem (1794 - 1850) was a Polish, Hungarian and (later) Turkish general involved with the 1848 Hungarian revolution. In November 1848 he took command of the Hungarian army in Transylvania and Banat, ousting the Austrian troops within four months; he later led his troops in several significant victories over the Russians. Admired by his soldiers, he was named "father Bem". Unfortunately, his troops were defeated in 1849 in battles at Segesvar and Temesvar, ending the Hungarian revolution. His statue (pointing the way forward) is in a small square surrounded by flower beds. In 1956 200,000 Hungarian students gathered here to protest against Soviet rule, in a rally originally organized to support Polish workers. The square is accessible at all times with no entry fee.

Bem Jozsef Memorial is very close to the River Danube on the Buda side. It stands next to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
It is nothing special.

The statue by József Bem is very classically designed and shows the general in a dynamic pose. It is good for a photo, but not particularly eye-catching. If you take a short break in the square, you can look at the statue in peace.
