Message from Sinaia to people of Thame on Remembrance Day

Please please see the below message  from Sinaia to people of Thame on Remembrance Day:


“Members of Socio-Cultural Associati
on ”Prahova Excelsior” and of the Literary Club” Lucian Blaga” from Sinaia,have always felt connected to Thame cultural realities and are impressed by the way the English people commemorate Remembrance Day.

We would like to join you to honour those who lost their lives in World War One. At the same time we are impressed how a flower,the poppy-came to symbolise the sacrifice  of those who died for their country.

Recently a delegation of ASPE members participated to TAL Festival and had a presentation on the most beloved Queen of Romanians,Queen Marie.

This is why we thought it would be important to point out our Queen’s image as” The Soldier Queen” during World War One  ,the Queen who visited the front line ,who went on the battlefield ,who talked to the wounded officers  in the grounds of hospitals ,who offered gifts to soldiers.The Queen who loved Romania so much ,so deeply and who had a significant role in the construction of a War Monument :The Commemorative Cross ForThe Romanian Heroes  of the First World War , also known as the Heroes’Cross, erected on Mount Caraiman, in the Bucegi Mountains.The monument  was built between 1924-1928  at an altitude of 2,291 metres  and with a height of 40 metres .It  was built to honour the memory of 30.000 Romanian soldiers who died during the battles along Prahova Valley. In 2013 the monument was chosen by Guinness  World Records as the highest cross in the world ,erected on the peak of a mountain, The Bucegi Mountains.

The legend has it that Queen Marie had a dream in which she saw the  Bucegi Mountains ’being drenched with the  blood of heroes and she decided to have the monument built so that our heroes will always be remembered.The Cross has been  standing still for almost 100 years, looking straight down on Prahova Valley . A wide panorama of cliffs or tall majestic trees unfolds under our eyes.

And the nature echoes  The Cross is a promise,a  promise to pay our respects to our heroes.’

 

In 1919 The Cult  of Heroes Society was established under the name  of ”Fallen Heroes” in  the War and in 1927 it was named The Cult of Heroes. Queen Marie wanted to keep alive strong memories of all Romanian Heroes who died in World War One.

On this commemorative day 11.11. 2019, ASPE board of Directors and Lucian Blaga Literary Club from Sinaia,twinned town with Thame, would like to bring a pious thought to the English and Romanian soldiers  who sacrificed their lives for their country and to Queen Marie who belongs to both Great Britain and Romania.”
