Prague had quite a few memorials that reminded you in various ways of the horror of some of its recent past. One day I passed this sculpture of a set of humans who appeared to be marching down the steps on the hillside. When you saw the figures from the side it became apparent that the figures had varied parts of their bodies missing. The image of these figures was haunting.
The plaque reads: "The memorial to the victims of communism is dedicated to all victims not only those who were exiled or executed but also those whose lives were ruined by totalitarian despotism. "
