Post-WWII Memorials In the Former Yugoslavia

Spotted on Reddit: an online database of post World War II memorials in the former Yugoslavia. I think this site is the work of one guy; he’s doing an excellent job. “In a direct, physical sense, what are commonly referred to as ‘spomenik’ (the Serbo-Croatian/Slovenian word for ‘monument’, the root ‘spomin’ meaning memory) are a series of memorials built from the 1960s-1980s by Tito’s Republic of Yugoslavia, whose primary intent was to honor the events of the National Liberation War (1941-1945) (aka WWII).”
