|The War Memorial just in case you hadn't guessed!|
|Atop one of the colonnades.|
|At the entrance: the twin enforcers of terror in Hungary from 1944 to 1956.|
|Close up of victims killed at Andrassy Ut.|
|Saw wall after wall of these 'bricks' representing lard people were given to eat in lieu of butter.|
In the cellar of the ‘House of Loyalty,’ members of the Arrow Cross tortured and killed hundreds of people.
|The 'Memorial Wall of Victims' where the names of the victims are engraved in glass|
Especially moving was the 'Tower of Lost Communities' which displayed the names of 1,441 Hungarian towns and villages where the Jewish communities have ceased to exist as a consequence of the deportations in 1944, as inhabitants lost their lives in concentration camps or forced labor service. Attached to the Center is a beautiful synagogue, photos of which are below.
|Each of the glass seats had a photo and the name of someone who perished in the camps.|

|The 'Tree of Life'|
I apologize if this was, in part, a depressing post for you to read; that was certainly not my intention. For me, there was still beauty to behold amid the terror and horrific scenes.
Wishing each of you and your families peace as always,
