The memorial to the victims of Stalinism was established in 1990 and its author is P Saar.
The monument, which was initially erected on the corner of Riia and Pepleri Streets in Tartu by the association of freedom fighters Memento was reopened in its new sport at Pepleri 27. Black stripes run through the grey stone parquet of the square. They depict the railway tracks that symbolise deportation to Siberia. The waterworks of the monument make it possible for water to drip off the petals of the cornflower, like tears.
