one of the lesser Nazi crimes

 

 

(Seems to have been a rush of bronze sculpturing in the late 1900s.  Probably a lot of generals, maires and such in their birthtowns.  Not knowing each one I would not say about the symbolic value, but artistically several of the examples look hideous or banal. Marat looks to be sitting on a toilet.)

Nothing that the French had not done before, even before the Revolution.

One of the more appropriate ones when you think about it. :D

There is an apocrypha about Heydrich ordering the removal of Mendelsohn's statue from a major Prague concert hall, apparently he changed his mind when those responsible did not know who he is, so took out the manuals to find the Jew among the statues and took down Wagner... Sounds to be a bit too good to be true though.

 

But yeah, there were several waves of statue removal in Bohemia... After the fall of Austria-Hungary, after the occupation, after the Commie takeover and during Commie era, after the fall of Commies...

Most of those statues were pretty ghastly. I think the Germans may have done France a favour by smelting them.

Stonemason just have been a good job but only as long as you were not equated with your work. BTW, what did the Austrians ever do to you? Aside from that 17th century stuff. ;)
