Memorial to the Victims of Communism

Memorial to the Victims of Communism
Even in a city like Prague that's bursting at the seams with unusual and moving art, The Memorial to the Victims of Communism at Petrin hill in Mala Strana commands the viewer's full attention. Dedicated to the victims of the communist regime, this masterpiece made by sculptor Olbram Zoubek with the help of architects Jan Kerel and Zdenek Holzel is especially disturbing at dawn and twilight. Depicting seven men scattered up a flight of stairs,only the first figure is intact, the statues decaying with each step up, symbolizing the effects of communism on the Czech people.

Moving Monument in Lesser Town
I never would have happened upon this monument if it weren't for some friends who were studying in Prague. It's sort of off the beaten path in Malá Strana, Prague, but had I not seen it, I might not have any thing else to say about Prague....except "na zdraví".

Memorial to the Victims of Communism
This disturbing series of statues is dedicated to the victims of the Communist era between 1948-1989. It depicts the suffering of a humanity and especially political prisoners fighting a war of freedom. One man is decaying before our eyes while another in the back is missing a limb.
