Long Description:

The words that speak for themselves:

The end of Easter light relay - In view over the Iron Curtain, the Easter light relay from Jerusalem, carried by members of Austrian Catholic Youth Group, has to finish at this place on May 26, 1963. This stone is built here to commemorate all the persecuted churches in the Eastern block. The light of the world will shine in full splendor again, one day.

Ukoncenie stafety Velkonocneho svetla - S pohladom ponad Zeleznu oponu, nasa stafeta s Velkonocnym svetlom z Jeruzalema, nesena Rakuskou katolickou mladezou, tu musi ukoncit svoju put. Tento kamen tu bol polozeny na znak pripomenutia perzekuovanych kostolov vychodneho bloku. Toto svetlo raz zaziari v plnej nadhere na celom svete.
