author Bogdan Bogdanović
project The Memorial cemetery for the Victims of Fascism, Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia
written by Ivan Ristić


When he won the competition for the Memorial Cemetery in Sremska Mitrovica, organized locally in early 1959, Bogdan Bogdanović recovered after several years of professional stagnation and embarked upon a cycle that we could call, a little pretentiously, the great decade of this Belgrade architect. The cemetery was followed by monuments in Prilep, Mostar, Kruševac and Jasenovac, to mention just a few.
