Why, if Rumanian officials would ever lay flowers on any Hungarian military monuments in Transylvania, would they use the Red-White-Green combination? :roll:

I believe the gesture is what actually counts, and the fact that they remember the fallen even 60 years after the events.

To me it looks pretty abandoned in that field. But the white plaque on the monument looks fresh.

As I wrote earlier:

There was not much choice for the location of the mass grave, but close to the battlefield, where the soldiers fell. :roll:

Yes, I understand. But I meant its aspect. There are weeds out there. It looks "neangrijit". I guess its better than nothing though. No hard feelings.

I saw article about at least 4 Military cemeteries where Romanian soldiers are buried in Slovakia. I believe few years ago former Romanian king visited Slovakia and he also visited some places where Romanian soldiers are buried.

-Fallen romanian soldiers memorial in Piešťany (Pamätník padlých rumunských vojakov v Piešťanoch)
-Monument of romanian soldiers in Lučenec (Pomník rumunských vojakov v Lučenci)
-Monument of romanian soldiers in Poníky (Pomník rumunských vojakov na Poníkach)

Romanian soldiers are also burried in:

-Local cemetery in Stará Turá (miestny cintorín v Starej Turej)
-Local cemetery in Trenčianska Teplá (miestny cintorín v Trenčianskej Teplej)

But there are many monuments dedicated not only to soldiers of one nation (most soviet and romanian)

In Pálháza, Hungary there is a monument dedicated to those Soviet soldiers who died in the actions there in late '44. The red star and stele was originally placed above the mass grave shortly after the conflict, however sometime later (post-reform era?) the memorial was moved to it's present position next to the main street--the mass grave itself now lies under the FOOTBALL FIELD!! Supposedly all warring factions are represented in this 300+ mass grave--German, Hungarian, Romanian, and Soviet--and because of this the possibilities for exhumation and identification are grim. Representative nations either do not care about this, or do not want to concern themselves with the trouble involved in this task, or any number of stupid reasons.

I wonder if during a game the football players think about the heroicism of those souls and their bones resting under the pitch, regardless of nationality!!!!

I just visited saturday Zvolen romanian military cemetry. It's a nice position on top of the hill with many trees and green grass.
I made a lot of pictures.
