Croatia | Preservationists try to stop vandalism of monuments to anti-Fascist fighters in WWII

After the break-up of Yugoslavia, thousands of monuments dedicated to anti-fascist Partisan fighters and victims of Croatia’s World War II Ustasa regime have been vandalised or demolished - but some activists are now determined to halt the destruction.

A photograph from the small Croatian coastal town of Kastel Luksic, taken in April, in which a statue dedicated to the fallen fighters of World War II is pictured lying on its back amid construction refuse, went viral in Croatia and appalled many people.
