A Flower for the Dead. The Memorials of Bogdan Bogdanović

Bogdan Bogdanović (1922 to 2010) was the creator of the legendary ‘concrete flower’ in Jasenovac and the
Piranesi award winning Memorial Park in Vukovar. His monuments, memorial sites and necropolises in all parts of former Yugoslavia symbolise the cultural diversity and the tragic course of the history of the Balkans. They share the creator’s stance and are ‘inclusive rather than exclusive, cohesive rather than divisive’.

Friedrich Achleitner writes the above in this book of words and images about the architect, urbanist, writer, polymath, former mayor of Belgrade and the author’s friend while in exile in Vienna.
