Description of commemoration

At the site of the execution of the largest group of prisoners in the Sajmište / Semlin camp in the forest, there is currently the Spomen Park Jainci (‘Jajinci Memorial Park’), located in the village of Jajinci near Belgrade. According to the information boards located at the entrances to the park from the JNA (Yugoslavian National Army) Boulevard, the Park area was marked out in 1951 from the 43-hectare area, which became a place of execution and mass burial of around 80,000 victims in the period from July 6, 1941 to November 6, 1943. Another information board indicates that during World War II (in 1941-1944) over 80,000 Serbs, Jews and Roma were killed and buried in this area.
