Lithuania’s Haunting Hill of Crosses

Hill of Crosses - 075

Outside the city of Šiauliai, Lithuania, there's an area covered with an estimated 55,000 crosses. They are memorials to Lithuanian patriots who died in campaign after campaign to free the nation from various occupying forces. The crosses have been bulldozed several times, but spring back starting immediately afterward. Read the history of this amazing memorial at Environmental Graffiti. Link -via the Presurfer
