1956 Miles to Help Hungary
AHF's Laszlo Buda is raising funds for United Way Hungary by riding his bicycle 1956 miles by October 23, 2006.
He is seeking pledges/sponsorships in this 50th anniversary year of the Hungarian Revolution. "Laz" rode 1210 miles last year, so this would be 50% more - quite a physical challenge! Make a pledge and contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. See www.1956in2006.org and [read more] about Laszlo.
National Hungarian Memorial Dedicated on June 12th, 2005. AHF's President Emeritus, Dr. Nadas Gyula, keynote speaker. Arpad Dobolyi of the Memorial Committee, chose the site for the National Hungarian Memorial honoring Hungarian heroes that perished in the fight against the communist takeover.
The memorial is the culmination of over two decades of work. The idea of erecting a Hungarian Monument was proposed and organized by Mr. Dobolyi with the cooperation of the Hungarian community in 1984.
The granite construction of cremation niches provides the background for the monument featuring the Hungarian Crest in the center with the Hungarian Turul on top. The Turul is cast in bronze, with its wings spread wide and clutching a sword in its talons.
This creation of art is that of sculptor Gyuri Hollosy, who is also known for his Mindszenty statue in downtown Cleveland and proposed AHF 1956 Memorial seen here with the artist. [contact Arpad Dobolyi] [read more]
