This a monument to Father Jerzy Popieluszko who was a priest and anti-communist activist in Poland who was abducted and killed in 1984 by communist government agents. It is located in Walnut Hill Park in New Britain Connecticut (about 2 blocks from my apartment). I walk around this park often and shot this photo on a foggy morning about a week ago. I thought it was interesting how the framework of the flame sculpture complemented the leaf-less winter trees.
A stone next to the monument is inscribed with the Polish "Zlo Dobrem Zwyciezaj" (Good Shall Vanquish Evil)
