Sometimes, and fifteen years after the end of the war, pieces of bricks fall...

« Quelques froides statues aux pieds des sycomores

Rappellent un jamais plus avec le nom des morts

Un oiseau de chagrin dans le ciel assombri

Chante un nouveau matin sur des ruines en Bosnie

Pour un temps d'amour tant de haine en retour »

Critique du chapitre 3, Hubert Félix Thiéfaine

Bonjour Robert,

Vous avez beaucoup voyagé ;-) Avez-vous pu goûter les pizzas proposées dans LA pizzéria proche de cet emblématique souvenir de la guerre? En 1997, c'était un des rares endroits possibles à Vukovar, et la vue sur le Danube impressionnante. Je découvre peu à peu vos nombreuses photos, c'est très agréable de voyager ainsi, et merci aussi pour les calembours ! Amitiés, Papymaj

If bricks falls,after fifteen years,your country should renovate water tower,if they do not have money,there are so many funds for you in European Union,and much more world organizations. Best regards!

Hi, Stojakovic, I was thinking this water-tower was left in that situation as a symbol of the resistance of the inhabitant of Vukovar. It's probably now a monument. How fool can be mankind. Best regards, Papymaj

It probably is monument,but even monument needs to be maintained so it can be left to generations to come.My post was replica for this picture headline...No hard fillings.All best,Papymay

Sorry mister Stojakovic, My intention was certainly not to be rude. And you're perfectly right : this tower needs to be maintained ! I was just deploring the war's destructions, and all the trouble for civilian people... All the best to you !

This water tower is left broken as a monument of war and it will never be repaired again. Just a bit for the reason of safety.

Nice picture. I saw this water tower in 1995 and then it was in much better condition, but with smaller holes.
