How to deal with dissonant monuments

8 August 2021

The article written by ATRIUM's President Patrick Leech gives a short overview on the history and present situation of the huge Buzluzdha Monument in Bulgaria. As the monuent is slowly disintegrating, ICOMOS Bulgaria and ICOMOS Germany are supporting the Buzluzdha Foundation in finding funds to save the building from decay. The author points out the importance of protecting such dissonant heritage, not only for its architectural or artistic value, but also for its great potential of reminding European citizens of the terrible claims of autocratic, dictatorial and totalitarian regimes of the 20th century.
