1945-Yugoslavia was a pretty terrible place. The Socialist Federal Republic who was then in power killed thousands of its political opposition. In the 1960s and ’70s, the Yugoslavian government began to build "Spomeniks", a word that translates as "monuments," in honor of those that were killed. Belgian photographer Jan Kempenaers visited these monuments and documented the area for his new book Spomenik. Check out the amazing photos by clicking on the thumbnails above. [Daily Icon]
