Memorial Hall for Croatian Defenders
The Memorial Hall for Croatian Defenders is built on the Trpinjska road. The building is constructed in the shape of a tightly clenched fist and its author is a sculptor from Zagreb Miljenko Romić. The memorial hall symbolizes the strength needed to defend Vukovar from aggression and it was opened on 24 September 2011. The center of the hall features a chasm with a cupola of a destroyed tank of the former Yugoslav People’s Army. The 12 video displays on the walls show photographs from the war and video records of the war, you can also hear war reports as well as information about every member of the brigade who died. Here you can also see a spiral wall as a symbol of the Storm, which was the last major battle of the Croatian War of Independence. In front of the Memorial Hall there is a tank, as a symbol of the might broken by the brave defenders, as well as a bust of Blago Zadro, an indisputable hero of the Homeland War, who fought and led the defenders in this area in Vukovar. The entrance to the Memorial Centre looks like a maze that is built as a symbol of the unpredictability of the Croatian defenders’ fate.
