Map of the Camp Locations
The map shows the locations of the largest camps for Jews and Roma during World War II in Serbia, as well as the locations of the largest killing sites.
The camps on the map are marked in orange, while the killing sites are marked in red. A click on the coloured circles takes you to pages with more details about the locations.
The map and the website were created during 2020. by the Centre for Public History with the support of the US Embassy in Serbia, as part of the project “Mapping the Holocaust – Places of Remembrance in Serbia”.
The Holocaust in Serbia
About 85% of the pre-war Jewish population was killed. Many were killed in Serbia itself by the Nazi forces while many others were sent to death camps located in the Third Reich. It is our duty as individuals and as a society to remember them.
The Camp Locations
As part of the project “Mapping the Holocaust – Places of Remembrance in Serbia”, run by the Centre for Public History and supported by the US Embassy in Serbia, nine locations of concentration camps for Jews and Roma in Serbia during World War II have been mapped.
A brief historical essay has been written about each of these places, containing essential information about the interned people, the command structure and the camp itself. The key sources – publications or archival material – have also been listed. Complementing the text are photographs showing the current state of the former camps, and, except in a few cases where they could not be found, historical photographs.
