Inscriptions

Where the battles thundered and the fires blazed, From where we drove out the aggressors, Where our people fought bravely and steadfastly, Now intensive construction has begun. And the populations, made homeless by the enemy, Are resettling their native villages. Welcome to your new hut; Live in it freely, happily and prosperously!
