Monument to General György Klapka

General György Klapka was one of the commanders of the Hungarian Uprising (1848-1849). Heroes from Poland also took part in the uprising on the Hungarian side, including Józef Bem, Henryk Dembiński and Józef Wysocki as the commander of the Polish Legion. We fought together with the partitioning powers of Poland (Austria and Russia) for the independence of Hungary. The uprising was suppressed. During our January Uprising, General Klapek, as a representative of the Hungarian National Committee in Paris, signed with the Polish National Government, represented by Józef Ordega, a secret treaty on Polish-Hungarian cooperation in the fight for independence. During the Prussian-Austrian war of 1866, he headed the Hungarian Legion formed in Nysa.
