The Memorial To The Victims Of Communism features seven gruesome looking bronze figurines walking down the stairs who represent the political prisoners from the Communist Era. At the base of the Petrin Hill, the sculptures made by Olbram Zoubek, Zdenek Holzel and Jan Kerel look decayed or in a way, falling apart. You will have a clear insight on how inhumanly the prisoners were treated as you can see the sculptures have broken apart limbs and cracked bodies. The Memorial To The Victims Of Communism also has a bronze panel in the centrepiece that depicts the numbers of the prisoners who were arrested, died in prison, were shot while they tried to escape, forced into exile and executed.

  • At the base of Petrin hill. This is a staircase with a man shown in stages of degeneration, to depict how political prisoners of communism were affected. If you're visiting here, bear in mind, it's a memorial! Seriously, please consider not photographing funny poses here......

  • Memorial to the Victims of Communism is Prague was created by the distinguished Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek located at the base of Petril Hill. The upper part of the memorial you can see 7 persons walking on stairs. The first person seems to be alright, but one can see clearly observe that the others are missing something of their anatomy which symbolizes the suffering of the prisoners, their courage and resilience.
