Austrian military cemetery

Location: section B, next to the Italian military cemetery
In 1962, the Austrian-Yugoslav Association erected a monument to the Austrians who died in Slovenia during World War II. The monument comprises a stone cube and a bronze figure connected by a smooth base plate made of the same stone. The bronze inscription on the cube conveys the message of the monument of peace between nations and the dead from various parts of Austria, which are symbolised by nine bronze provincial coats of arms distributed around the national coat of arms. The sculptor Wolfgang Skala modelled an ideal figure of an enraged naked young man, with a part of a broken sword raised above his head. Rather than the anatomy, it is the figure's lines simulating a warning sign that leave an impression. There are 275 graves here.
