A perfect memorial to visit with a war veteran to learn and understand what they experienced in 1991. A sad place worth to visit to learn about the Balkan wars. Tears will fall on your face

We visited with family who knew people killed here which added to the sadness and emotion of our visit. The memorial is beautifully crafted and visually powerful. It helped us to have already viewed a video explaining the tragedy before visiting the memorial.
