During and after the war from 1992 to 1995 it was repeatedly attacked in an attempt to destroy it. During the war it was dynamited twice, but the structure withstood the explosion. It is often defaced by graffiti.

The Social Democratic Party of Bosnia and Herzegovina organizes a yearly mowing and weeding of the area to help preserve the memorial.[2]
