This book traces the fate of the most important communist-era monuments in Bulgaria, from their construction to this day. The book contains 34 photographs and detailed information about the history of the monuments, compiled by the author over the course of three years.

The title of the book is borrowed from graffiti written over the entrance of the Memorial House of the Bulgarian Communist Party at Buzludja, which poignantly illustrates the fate of the communist-era monuments in Bulgaria. Conceived as expressions of national pride and reverence, most of them today are looted and neglected. Whether they commemorate the feats of the Soviet Army, the April Uprising of 1876, or the Serbo-Bulgarian War of 1885, they all share a common fate – to be silent symbols of a forgotten past.

The book "Forget your past" in English could also be ordered for the delivery abroad from the website of Librarie du Monieteur, Paris.
