Imre Nagy
Birth: Jun. 7, 1896
Death: Jun. 16, 1958

Prime Minister of Hungary 1953-1955, forced to resign and expelled from Communist Party for his liberalizing tendency. Became Prime Minister again following the brief anti-Soviet uprising in 1956. Executed in 1958. He was buried along with others (see 'Plot 300') in a distant corner of the Municipal Cemetery to which access was not allowed until 1989. Next to his grave stands a memorial bell inscribed in Latin, Hungarian, German and English. The Latin reads: "Vivos voco Mortuo plango Fulgura frango," which is quaintly translated as: I call the living persons, I mourn for the died persons, I chase the lightnings. 

Cause of death: executed
Cimetière du Père Lachaise *
City of Paris
Île-de-France, France
Plot: Division 44. This cenotaph was placed in Pere Lachaise as a memorial at a time when the Communist leadership of Hungary would not mark or allow access to his true burial place. Since 1989 the true grave has been restored and is now accesible (see 'Imre Nagy 'under 'Hungary')
