Harry Hill Bandholtz

Day of Tivadar in Hungary. The Hungarian version of Theodor means: the present of God
Harry Hill Pandholtz
This is general Harry Hill Bandholtz. I took this photo from behind because the light was much better like this. His statue is right in front of the US Embassy. But who was general Harry Hill Bandholtz?

A, American General who prevented a group of Romanian soldier from removing the treasures of the National Museum in 1919.
B, American General, the commander of the American zone of Budapest in 1945.
C, American General, the commander of the American zone of Budapest in 1919.


------------------------

The right answer to the previous question is C, a concert place and restaurant. It was a former Ukrainian ship..but never on cruise anymore:)

jazzy said...

what a great photo and a statue itself.
the answer to today’s Q would be:
A,

did you know in britain there is a very popular comedian called harry hill (a doctor became a comedian)..? =)

Zsolt72 said...

Jazzy...I never heard about Harry Hill..but I remember Benny Hill from the 80's.:) is Benny and Harry the same?

Jackie said...

Ha ha Jazzy, you got there first - I was going to ask any of the other Brits if they thought of Harry Hill the comedian when they saw this picture today.

No he's not the same as Benny Hill! I think he (Harry) is very funny. Did you know he's also just written a children's book and did all the illustrations himself - called "Tim the Tiny Horse". Apparently it's fun for adults too.

OK, ad break over now ;)
