Memorial to the Victims of Communism

On 22nd May 2002, the first memorial to victims of the Communist regime was unveiled in Prague. It consists of a line of quite scary statues representing different phases of a human figure’s destruction.

At first, one part of the body is missing, then another until the figure seems to disappear into the void completely. Situated in the Lesser Town under Petrin Hill, the memorial is the work of renowned Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek and architects Jan Kerel and Zdenek Hoelzel. Unfortunately, one of the statues was destroyed during a bomb attack in 2003.

It is moving not just for those who were contemporaries of the Communist regime and knew some things about it but for everybody who passes by, as it simply gives you the spooks just looking at it.
