This World War II monument is very nice designed. By using nothing but metal lines, the artist shapes easily recognizable faces. It reminds us of what happened at that time.

It's a statue. Of some sort of bell. I am not sure how something like this could be either excellent or terrible. I mean, it is just a statue, of some sort of bell, in the middle of Maribor.

By walking around the monument you can look at public announcements of the executions of the some 667 people who were condemned to death by the German forces. Erected in 1975, the sculpture is the work of local artist Slavko Tihec.

An interesting modern sculpture beside old Maribor. Has faces embedded within the exterior and names of the martyred included in a list written by Nazi occupiers.
