The Spomenik Database was begun in 2015 by American amateur researcher and historian Donald Niebyl (pronounced NEE-bull). The aim of this project is to act as a free and open educational resource for people around the world to learn about the often overlooked artistically ambitious and culturally significant WWII monument heritage of the former-Yugoslav region. Within the Spomenik Database website you will find a vast amount of information related to these monuments (often referred to as 'spomeniks'), such as historical profiles, essays, news articles, maps, photographs, documentaries and much, much more. Through the compilation of this online database, Donald has created the largest and most popular destination on the web for learning about and exploring the 'spomeniks', receiving over 10,000 visitors a month. In September of 2018, Donald Niebyl published a book based on his project which is titled "Spomenik Monument Database", put out by Fuel Publishing & Design.
Below you will find links to high quality image files of the Spomenik Database logos, book images, as well as a selection of monuments for the use in articles and other publications.
