Antun Augstincic is the creator of this massive, yet unusual monument which commemorates fallen fighters from this region, so called "Krajisnici" who faught in the "National Liberation War" against the Third Reich and their puppet regimes. It was bulit in 1961, 5km from Banjaluka, at the place where in 1941, the Regional Conference of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia for the Bosnian Krajina was held and several consultations related to the uprising as well. It is built from famous white stone from the island Brac and by looking at it "from total", it seems like a bullet fired in the direction of Krajina (Kozara and Grmec). There are soc-realistic reliefs depicting fighitng scenes on the sides, and on the front is a figure of one Krajisnik soldier who stands as symbol of the people's defiance and endurance.
