Spomeniks of Former Yugoslavia: Myth & Memory in the Balkans
Perhaps these spomeniks celebrated an idea of ‘Yugoslavia’ – but it was a national identity expressed in the language of artistic freedom.

This well-preserved memorial complex marks the site where partisans fought to liberate nearby Užice from Axis control.
