This paper aims to discuss this heterogeneous adventure and to analyse the aspects of Yugoslav architectural practice through the example of one specific typology: monuments built to commemorate the World War II battles and genocides that occurred during the Nazi-Fascist occupation of former Yugoslavia. The themes of “power in architecture” and “phenomenology in architecture” will therefore be discussed through this specific case study.
