06-08-09 Future Museum of the Homland War


Driving south from Zagreb, you start to see the impact of the 1991 war over what used to be known as Yugoslavia. Near Slunj, Croatia, we encountered this place, which was a collection of weapons, generally of Soviet make, that were used and/or captured during this war. Nearby was a memorial for the local people who had died in the war.

In this photo a young child is encouraged to climb up on one of the tanks. In the background is a shelled out building that was clearly involved in a ground battle. Look closely and you can see dimpled holes in the building. Those are from bullet strikes.
