Having grown up in that part of the world, I remember as a child being taken to "spomeniks" on school field trips. It is only as an adult that I have come to appreciate their artistic content and stunning beauty. They stand as commemoration to the all too many lost in war's fury, as reminders of the terrible toll that wars have taken in the Balkans. And yet they offer hope, showing that humans are capable of sublime expression in the face of immense tragedy. I applaud Jan Kempenaers's aesthetic vision, but lament that he has chosen to marginalize the authors of these masterpieces by treating them only as visual objects. But most of all, I lament that they stand in silent ruin today when their message is so desperately needing to be heard.

The photos are glorious, but there is NO story behind the sculptures/memorials...no brief bit of history, nada. I was hugely disappointed. There REALLY needs to be an addendum to the book that actually talks about these things. As it is, it's just a collection of "the greatest hits" of each piece. I'm sure he has many different views. It would have been good to see more than one angle.

In short, the idea is fantastic. It just wasn't taken NEARLY far enough...and now that it's been done once, I doubt anyone will redo it, and do it properly.

The artists showed marvelous vision. The book itself would have benefited by including more information about the artists and their work.
