I have these vague memories of standing on Frenštát town square, looking at this giant obelisk, and being told by someone (my fifth cousin Roman, perhaps?) that it was a memorial to the people who died during the plague in 1680.
But I’m trying to substantiate that memory with real evidence, and kind of struggling to do so.
I started reading this interesting book (okay, okay… mostly I skimmed it and read the captions of the pictures!) about obelisks dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
But it didn’t lead me closer to answers.
Help? Where to look to find out about this?
