The South Koreans stand partially hidden to present less of a target, and stand well away from the actual border, as there have apparently been instances of guards being pulled and abducted into the North. All the SK guards are at least 5′ 7″, and have a black belt in Tae Kwan Do or Judo.

  1. Beautiful.

    But I can't find a single mention of them being Soviet, so where is all the defensiveness coming from?

  2. Simon, I think he is saying that Yugoslavia was being influenced by the Soviet Union as part of the Communist Block, he was a little sloppy but most of us already know that Yugoslavia was not part of the Soviet Union.

    ReplyDelete
  3. But it was Communist, and frankly the Soviets were the Bear in the Room.

    Krusevo! from Macedonia <3 and its NOT abandoned .... Hometown of Tose Proeski and very important land mark in Macedonia

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well Yugoslavia was never under USSR influence neither, despite it was a communist country. Actually Yugoslavia and USSR had a very bad relationships, because Yugoslavia had great cooperation with EU and USA. Yugoslavia had great system, something between communism and capitalism, trying to have great relations with both USSR and USA. They were founders of the Non-Aligned Movement.So... Your comment is actually not true :)

  7. Makedonium Monument in Krusevo , never abandoned.

    They must change title something like Modernist Monument in Ex-YU

  9. Dear friend Tito, Belgrade was the first major European city to become “Judenrein”—free of Jews. It started in December 1941, before the Wannsee Conference where the Final Solution was formally adopted, and, by May, 1942, there were no more Jews left in Serbia.

  10. Firstly, Yugoslavia was a Socialist country-never a Communist! Secondly, its not true that we don't know the meaning on each of them. Thirdly, each design was made by an acknowledged artist. It is a pity not to recognise the modernistic style of Yugoslavian architecture in 60-80'ies of XXth century. Obviously, a person who initially wrote this text, never actually explored the architecture of buildings from same period as these sculptures. It is even laughable not to recognise the same architectural movement by an American, since I think that the initiator of the post is one...If Frank Loyd Wright was a Communist under USSR influence, than so be it and lets this discussion end

  13. Segrada familia looks like shit - and it has been looked after for quite some time. BTW I have allways learned that Serbia, France and Russia were closely connected. But things can change.

  14. Ok ''friend'', who killed the Jews in Belgrade!?!?!? And, what has that got to do with Tito's question, ''friend''!?!?!?

  17. Obisao sam neke od spomen parkova u bivsoj SFRJ ove godine. Krenuo sam sam motorom 13. juna i put je trajao 12 dana. Putovao sam kroz Hrvatsku, BiH, Crnu Goru i na kraju sam se vratio u Srbiju. Iz ove perspektive nemam reci koje bih opisao sam put i dozivljaje koji su me pratili. Ako nekoga zanima putopis i fotoreportazu moze procitati na https://www.facebook.com/Paths.Of.PLW.Putevima.NOBa

  18. In that time there was Western block NATO and Eastern block Warsaw pact, but Yugoslavia was not member of any of those. It just stayed in the middle and often was a mediator between East and West. Yugoslavia was one of the founders of United Nations.

  23. The meaning of many of these monuments has not been "forever lost." A quick google will give you the reasons why many of them were erected. Please remember to thoroughly research your article material.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Very striking. I like them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bear in the room? Russians in Yugoslavia? Haha, never. Read about split between Tito and Stalin in 1947. We were at a brink of war with soviets.

  26. Man, take a look who were the key people in history of MIT, Yale, etc.... Many of them from central- or even east european countries, area where our "fakulteti" have roots... Beside all, the percentage of population educated on top US universities is tiny. The majority in US is undereducated.
    Oh by the way, "7th mathematical gymnasium" from Belgrade has the highest score on mathematical olympics in the world.

  28. I recently visited Podgarić - also in good shape, not abandoned. Topic
    shows author misunderstanding of Yugoslavian history... During WW2
    Yugoslavian army (called partisans) mostly performed guerrilla fights,
    that's main reason why those monuments were built at remote locations.

  35. USSR, Yugoslavia and EU never existed in the same time. I was born and raised in Yugoslavia, and I still live there, just country is under another name, and I will say that we were and still are under Russian influence, in art and architecture, especially, and there is nothing to be a shame of, since we know who are representatives of Russian culture, and what they mean for the whole world!!!

    In that time there was Western block NATO and Eastern block Warsaw pact, but Yugoslavia was not member of any of those. It just stayed in the middle and often was a mediator between East and West. Yugoslavia was one of the founders of United Nations. " This comment is the most accurate ,only forgot to mention that YU. Egypt and India were founders of the Non-Aligned Movement. (the basis for the expression "third World ")

    ReplyDelete
  40. Exactly. I live in Prijedor,under the mountain Kozara on which one of the monuments is built and it most surely isn't abandoned but taken care of and visited regularly. And i don't even want to go to the forgotten meaning because it's wrong on way too many levels.

  42. Yes, but if you ask the Jewish community in Serbia, the Serbs weren't the ones who did it. The Serbs were under occupation, and its police was there to keep the peace. The Germans, exclusively, did the rest.

  45. Petrova Gora used to reflect the setting sun up to 30-40 kilometers, it was an absolutelly amazing site to see once you see it the first time from up close. That image is out of date, most of those stainless steel panels are missing. Dunno what is sadder; the destruction of something that beautiful or the lives of people who destroyed it

  54. You can always come to Balkan, we are not so big terrorists like western media talk. Actually you will be surprised how friendly and hospitable we are ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Look at that as an art. That monument is a time machine. its show us 3 eras of Balkan in a political and cultural way. First era - THE RED ONE. It was ahead of its time - era of being strong, proud, wealthy and harmonious where people was working together with songs on their minds. The second era DARK GREEN (not a nature green but the sick green and dark like a shadow) - era of manipulation, disappointment, era where culture was not so important but politics. Time when we were not strong wealthy and harmonious but enough proud that we don´t say sorry. Third era - the youngest era, mostly light green but still multicolor - chaotic but still nice, full with difference to love or hate, your choice, with a graffiti as a rebellion mark, a silent one. Monument like a witness of time and 3 generations- the one who build, the one who enjoyed and the one who waste. Think about it positively. World piece :*

  56. Listen, I do not want to argue here especially with a person who is insulting me. So if insult is only argument what you have, it is not for comments it is to say it in face, which I doubt people like you are able to do.....

    Me too. Good explanation. It's hard for people raised in Western countries to understand we were not "pure" communist society, since we had KPJ as a leading and the only political party in SFRJ, as I know. I say to my Canadians that our passport could travel to CCCP and to USA without visa, and they look at me as I am insane. I am still proud to say I was born in Yugoslavia and was lucky to be raised there, no matter what some of my countryman say now. Please, do not write rude comments, since we all have our own experience and right for our own opinion as born and raised in Yugoslavia. Mine was beautiful and I am fond of my memories, now when I know how people in other "modern and rich" western countries live.
