Age: 93 years
Region: Kaposvár, Somogy county, Hungary
In the shadow of history
This common oak –known among the locals as Freedom Tree– stands in a schoolyard in Kaposvár. It was planted in 1929 to mark the major milestones in Hungarian history. For 90 years this great oak has seen thousands of schoolchildren playing in its shade as they grow up and guiding them through their lives. It became not only part of their school experience but that of their every day life in Kaposvár. All have fond memories of the oak and have a special bond with it, as does the entire community.
