  • Peter Mansfeld was one of the insurgents of the Hungarian People's Uprising in 1956 and, at the age of 16, one of the youngest victims of the communist judiciary of the time. He was jailed at the age of 16 and given a custodial sentence. When he was 18, the sentence would be commuted to the death penalty and was hanged just 11 days after his birthday. He broke his arms during an escape attempt from the window of his cell. This sculpture, located in the Szabó Ilonka Utca under the Fisherman's Bastion, is reminiscent of this.

  • The Peter Mansfeld Monument stands in the heart of Budland, just a few meters from the Fisherman's Bastion, at the foot of a staircase leading up to the Bastei. From the Matthias Church you can walk here in less than three minutes. But the way back takes a little longer. The work shows a young man tumbling down a wall. Mansfeld, like many of his peers, took part in the 1956 Hungarian People's Uprising and was sentenced to imprisonment as a minor. When he turned 18, the sentence was subsequently commuted to a death sentence and Mansfeld was hanged 11 days after his 18th birthday. Verdict: An unusually designed monument that pays tribute to a hero of Hungarian history. We found it thematically interesting and therefore worth seeing. If you're nearby, it's worth a quick visit.
