A monument to Hungarian soldiers killed in the Battles of the Isonzo was unveiled in a site above Nova Gorica, close to where some of the worst fighting of WWI took place.
“I’m sure that concern for war graves is a permanent and important task of every modern and cultivated country. Attitude to the dead is a fundamental ethical issue,” Slovenian Defence Minister Matej Tonin said. Hungarian Defence Minister Tibor Benko, who attended the ceremony, thanked Slovenia and the Nova Gorica municipality for nurturing permanent memory of the Hungarian soldiers who perished in the Battles of the Isonzo.
