Summary/Abstract: According to the research conducted by the Association for Social Research and Communication, 42 memorials were built in the area of the Municipality of Centar Sarajevo dedicated to those who died and those who suffered during the war against Bosnia and Herzegovina (1992 – 1995). There are more memorials dedicated to fallen fighters than to civilians. Thus, of the total number of memorials, 17 are dedicated to civilian victims of the war, and 25 were built as an act of honoring fallen members of military units, most often members of the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBIH), but also the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MUP), and members of foreign military units. Memorials were built in twelve local communities.
