Memorial of Rebirth | Bucharest, Romania

The Memorial of Rebirth (Memorialul Renaşterii) reminds the bloody revolution against the Ceausescu regime in Bucharest in December 1989. Even though the idea of the memorial obviously enjoys wide popularity, the memorial itself had to face critical voices asking whether or not that is the best way to honor the heroes of the revolution. Due to the critics, the 25m high marble-pillar now has nicknames like the “Olive on a Toothpick” or “Potato of the Revolution”.
