Prague In Your Pocket - Memorial to the Victims of...
Near the funicular railway station and opposite the Újezd tram stop, there is a controversial memorial to the victims of communism. A group of statues by Olbram Zoubek emerge into totality as they walk, or are at various stages of destruction, depending how you look at it. Why are they controversial? Other artists say they are kitschy, while feminists are angry because all the figures are male and they (quite rightly) claim women were persecuted under the communists regime too. The memorial was damaged by two bomb attacks in late 2003.
