Spomenik is the Slovenian, Serbian, Croatian, Serbo-Croatian word for Monument. In the 1960s and 70s, the former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito commissioned these structures to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš). From 2006 to 2009, Jan Kempenaers toured around the ex-Yugoslavia region to photograph these amazing structures. Here’re my favorite ones.
