I probably wouldn't have seen this monument if it hadn't been for the fact that half of the promenade was closed along the water north and west of Como. You had to almost actually walk through the monument to get around the barricade set up.

Located in a green park by Lake Como. The stones here were brought from Nazi's concentration camps and from the city of Hiroshima- Japan. On the bronze parts of this monument, are written words of peoples from WWII.

This monumento reminds us of a sad part in Europe's history: In a pleasant setting we can read some quotes of people who died in world war two.
