The memorial originated as a competition project in 1959. The architect picked a typical period form – a low material of a simple square plan floating above the pedestal.

Its elementary shape reflected an antiquation of the historicism then by a terse geometrical shape. For political reasons the author was not allowed to continue with the project until 1963. He was rather familiar with a sculptural conception and on that account he teamed up with a young sculptor Jozef Jankovič when outlining the final look of the memorial.
