Post-Communist Monuments Database

Use this page to search our formal database of information on monuments and memorials in 26 post-Communist states. The database identifies new, altered, proposed, and threatened sites, focusing primarily but not exclusively on post-Communist capital cities from 1989-2010. For events after 2010, see the "News" section of our website.

As we are interested in identifying politically salient events, our data is drawn from a wide range of newspaper and wire reports from around the world in English, English translation, Russian, and Czech. We plan to expand these databases and to add additional language sources in the future. Please note that events may appear in more than one linguistic database.

After receiving the search results, click on the ID number to see more information about a particular monument. These individual pages are under construction, so please check back frequently.
