  Synagogue in Nagykanizsa - Memorial to Jewish soldiers of WWI

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Kravtsov, Sergey, 2018

According to the site https://www.nagykanizsa.hu/varos/kanizsaiseta, 

"Monument erected at the western entrance of the Synagogue. The monument, made of limestone-imitated artificial stone, resting on columns and depicting a ark of the covenant, is decorated with three black granite slabs above the slabs: "1914-1918" on a granite slab: "They died for their homeland". The names and ranks of the 77 heroic dead of Jewish descent were engraved in gold letters on the three tables. Also on the granite board are some verses from the poem of József Kiss: "Worship in the peace of God, Sleeping heroes, our pale soldiers in the fog of passing away, Your homeland is the eternal ray of light. József Kiss" The stone works were carried out by Károly Hoffmann, the marble works by Kálmán Weiszberger, the bronze wreath on the top of the monument by Ignác Baumgarten, made by the chief engineer of the Transdanubia Steam Mill and Power Plant with his own hands. The inauguration took place on May 11, 1924, as part of a grand ceremony."
