Concrete Utopia: The Monument to the Revolution on Mount Kozara

The Monument to the Revolution on Mount Kozara, designed by Dušan Džamonja from 1970-72, evokes the harrowing experience it was built to commemorate—an intense 1942 battle where Axis troops laid siege to Communist-led resistance units and local civilians.
