What people say

"Memorial to the Victims of Communism in Prague was created by the distinguished Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek in cooperation with architects Zdeněk Hölzl and Jan Karel. It is located at the base of Petřín hill. In the upper part of the memorial you can see 7 persons walking on stairs. The first person seems to be all right, but one can clearly observe that the others are missing something of their anatomy, which should symbolise the suffering of the prisoners, their courage and resilience."
"The Memorial to the Victims of Communism (Czech: Pomník obětem komunismu) comprises a set of statues dedicated to honoring those who suffered under the communist regime in Czechoslovakia from 1948 to 1989. "
