In this paper I am observing the Statue of Josip Jelačić on the main square in Zagreb as a memory site, a term coined by the French author Pierre Nora. I will present how Statue's inscribed meanings as a memory site changed over time from two viewpoints – political remembrance and cultural memory. By analysing media discourse seen in newspapers Večernji list from September and October 1990, I wanted to underline the meanings former political authority in 1990 had inscribed into the Stuatue. Through interviews with seven participants from which the three were born in the sixties and four of them around 1990, I enquired about their cultural memory, which accentuates individual experiences and memories related to the Statue as a memory site. I wanted to present meanings ascribed to the Statue today and compare them with its former inscribed meanings, both during the period when the Statue was removed from the Square and during its anew placement in 1990.
