I have been collecting images of these type of Monuments if for a while now. I suppose what mad them fascinating is that they resembled something "out of this world".I realized many of them had something in common, so I decided to look up what these unconventional monuments are based on. These "Spomenok" monuments are located in Slovenia and serve as mass graves, which are spread throughout the country.In 1945, the at the time Social Federal Republic of Yugoslavia set upon a program of purges of political opponents and undesirables at the end of World War II, resulting in over to 400 known mass grave sites holding tens of thousands of victims. source: here
