This is the list of old Yugoslavian monuments from post WWII, socialist era (1945-1991). They are located all over the territories of six former Yugoslav republics, and dedicated to the heroes of partisan resistance, or victims of Nazi genocide during the occupation. Nowadays, sadly,(due to the common hatred towards communist heritage in all new- formed countries) these abstract sci fi like giants, lays mostly forgotten, covered with rust, moss and graffiti, left for negligence and decay; which, on the other hand, gives them some special otherworldly quality. For younger generations and foreign tourists they`re like relics from another planet, or post-apocalyptic monuments of destroyed civilization, paradoxically, maybe even more beautiful and inspirational now, then they were in president Tito`s glorious days.

Sudden popularity and growing interest for them, shown in the past few years,among young artists, science fiction freaks, or common travelers from all around the world, showed us that these pieces of history still carries some special, mythical message. It`s like they`re finding a strange new ways to be cleaned of dust, rediscovered and loved like before, a process which will maybe (in some distant future), bring them back to the the hearts and minds of nations who originally build them , making them (us), again proud of the past that we were so eagerly trying to forget.

Rođena zemljo, jesi li znala
tu je pogino bataljon ceo
crvena krv je procvetala
kroz snežni pokrov, hladan i beo.
Noću je i to zavejo vetar.
Ipak, na jugu vojska korača:
Pao je četrnaesti kilometar,
al nikad neće - Kadinjača!
