1975 Yugoslav WWII Monuments Tourist Map

Interactive Map - use +/- or mouse wheel to zoom

The above navigable image is a 1975 Yugoslav map of the memorials (spomeniks) to the National Liberation War (WWII). It was graciously provided to me courtesy of Jan Kempanaers. While this map does not provide the location of ALL spomeniks, as many were built after this date, and not every single one is included, it does give a good idea of the vast amount of spomeniks spread across Yugoslavia. It is not clear how many of these still exist or have been destroyed or forgotten over the years. The legend for this map, in the upper right hand corner of the image, is translated here:
