Best Implemented Façade or Interior Project Using Ceramics
About the project
The memorial is installed where the most dreadful concentration camp was in the lands of ex Yugoslavia during World War 1.
It looks like a stela that represents a funeral candle, with ceramic icons depicting saint martyrs and the holidays associated with the resurrection. Topped with the angel holding a Byzantine cross, the stela features 150 most common Serbian feminine and masculine names.
