THE FLOWER MONUMENT IN JASENOVAC

Bogdan Bogdanović designed the Flower Memorial in Jasenovac. It was built in 1966 on the site of the former Jasenovac Camp III (Brickworks).

The memorial is made of reinforced concrete. It consists of a base with six niches separated by concrete walls, along the bases of which are basins for water, and a central column with extends into the developed mantle of the Flower.

Six trapeze - shaped slabs extend to the ceiling part of the niches. The crypt of the monument is paved with railway sleepers and on the nord side, there is a bronze plaque on which verses from the poem Jama (The Pit) by Ivan Goran Kovačić are etched in relief.
