Description of commemoration
The Kopjafa made by the local sculptor Jan Oravc, erected in the area belonging to Romano Kher, a local Rumungra (Rom Ungro) community (Association and music group called Rómske Srdcia, i.e. Romani Hearts).
At the top, the Kopjafa has a crown, which resembles crossed violin heads. Below the crown, there is a sunny rosette symbol, then information about the year of unveiling – 2005, then diamond-shaped ornaments, below a violin, oak or wine leaves. At the bottom (the memorial’s pedestal is covered with a chipboard), there is a plaque with an inscription in Hungarian.
„II. Világháború / Roma holokauszt / áldozatainak / emlékere.”
