CDT Strickler Recalls His Day in Hungary
Here is what CDT Zeke Strickler had to say as on his day as Cadet in Charge on the Cold War Staff Ride, "Today we had the privilege of visiting the Shoes on the Danube Memorial, the Hungarian Parliament building, the Imre Nagy statue, the House of Terror Museum, and Heroes Square. The Shoes on the Danube Memorial serves as a living memorial to the Hungarian Jews that were victims of the Holocaust. The Hungarian Parliament building is the location where the Hungarian revolution was sparked. Imre Nagy, the Hungarian leader during the revolution, is remembered by the Hungarian people as a symbol of nationalism and pride. The Hungarian's use the House of Terror Museum to present the history of their troubled past under different authoritarian regimes. Lastly the Heroes Square monument depicted Hungarian pride throughout many centuries."
