Roadside monuments

Along many highways there are monuments that remind us about the front road of the liberators of Europe from fascism, somewhere supported, sometimes deteriorate, but stand in defiance of those who wish to forget or to rewrite history. There are probably other monuments to soldiers and historical events in many countries. Post photos of such roadside monuments here, even destroyed and forgotten, maybe someone's conscience will Wake up...

Roads of war

When I saw the thread title written in cyrillic I thought it was a spam thread.

PS: I would transcript this into cyrillic, but I'm not bored now

Monuments are an interesting topic as such, but political propaganda is something I do not suppose to read on this forum. It will give start to a flame war which, in the end, few will like.

This is not a political propaganda but a matter of preservation of monuments in honor of the dead and the surviving veterans of that terrible war...

Looking back at my trips to eastern countries, those monuments are almost exclusively present in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. There are plenty of them, at least in some parts. But mostly those are tanks or guns on various pedestals. I didn't find them very interesting as they become rather repetitive.

24 May 1915: Riccardo di Giusto was the first Italian soldier to be killed in WWI. It happened near Drenchia, province of Udine, north-east Italy, around 100 meters from the current Italo-Slovenian border.

Here the monument to remind him, around the SP45. Behind the little building on the backgruond (former border police booth), is already Slovenia.


Location

The last two Italian soldiers killed on WWI died on 4th November 1918, in Paradiso di Pocenia, also in Udine province. Here's the monument, at the junction between SR353 and SP87.

There are many crucifixes by the road or at the intersections in Roman Catholic countries/areas where Catholics live.

Monument of the Plague, built in 1797 near Ruma in Serbia (then Habsburg Empire).





It was built to commemorate plague epidemic two years earlier which caused death of 53% of the population of nearby town of Irig. Ruma was saved from this epidemic.

There are two monuments. First one is consisted of the crucifix, statues of Saint Roch and Saint Sebastian.



Smaller one looks like milestone:

Dying lion from 1851 in Slovenia on the road to the Predel Pass on the Italian border. It commemorates a battle between Austria and France in 1809 where France (Napoleon) won.
