Monument to Victims of Communism


This interesting monument is located in quite a visible place – if you’re riding or walking through Ujezd, you can spot it very easily – tourists don’t pay much attention to it, and if they do, they don’t do much apart from making a photo with the monument in the background. Very few people read the commemorative board next to the monument, but if they did, maybe they would stop climbing the steps and posing with smiles between the monument’s statues.

It’s worth taking a moment to see this monument, because Olbram Zoubek, the author of the project perfectly explained what communism is. This monument shows the part-by-part disappearing, reduced to pathetic shreds human. The inscription on the board says that this is a memorial in honor of those who were murdered and jailed. It is dedicated to anyone smothered by the totalitarian system. It’s really worth making a picture, because the human vanishing is perfectly visible on the photography and looks like a photoshop effect, which is even easier to appreciate in the photo than in reality.

You can look at the monument both at day and at night. (it is curiously highlighted)
