  • The death zone is a field game court. The rest is park and monuments. The ashes are human's. Nature does not care. 
  • Here died during the war, tens of thousands of ... There are also hundreds, if not thousands, of-in the early sixties. Strange, mystical place. Still, it is worth to visit. FOR THE SAKE OF MEMORY. In order not to let politicians of all stripes distort memory. Think for yourself!

  • For me, as for the person who loves history, this park is a very interesting place. Really feel the atmosphere of this tragic place, even eyes the tears when you see monuments on which so emotionally transferred to the pain and suffering people. Place well kept everywhere. Good idea with the monuments that are different facts with pictures of war and further history of the place. Also in the depths of the Park opens a wonderful view of the city.
