Museum “21st October”
At the entrance to the Memorial park, an impressive building of the Museum “21st October” was built. Its architecture accents the symbolism of the tragedy of Kragujevac. Architects Ivan Antic and Ivanka Raspopovic, intended to show the hopelessness of unarmed citizens of Kragujevac in front of the German machine guns, by building thirty towers with no windows or doors. The red brick is associated with the bloodshed, thirty three towers with thirty three mass graves in the Memorial park, and the transparent Plexiglas pyramids on top of those towers with the victims’ last gaze at the sky. The base of the museum is in the shape of a cross, a general Christian symbol of suffering.
The museum keeps some shocking documents related to the October 21st 1941. The most tragic ones are the notes of the shot citizens to their families written in their last moments, then, the items, documents and photos found in their possession. From the art objects in the museum, the cycle of 27 paintings of Petar Lubarda called “Enough with the blood, enough with the killing”, really stands out. There are two bronze sculptures in front of the museum, on the lawn, and in front of the entrance. They are called “Fates” and “Man without illusions” and they are the gift to Kragujevac, from the sculptor Jovan Soldatovic from Novi Sad.
