The circumstances of unveiling
Relatively small village (at that time has roughly one tousand people) collected the money for a monument. The choice of the author was clear: a professor and academic sculptor born in this village, Ladislav Majerský – a well known portraitis, medal designer, author of monuments and reliefs. The sculpture was cast in Prague. The pink ryolit stone was donated by a local mine.
Originally the monument was placd at the crossroads. During the world war II the village was bombed and the monument damaged. Only in the 1970‘s it was renovated in Strojárne Vyhne and moved to it actual place due to the alteration in the traffic.
The monument is unique in Slovak context due to its expresionist style. Nowadays a commemorative events take place here with laying wreaths and flowers.
