A concentration camp or Internment camp is the type of camp created for detention of political opponents, members of specific ethnic or religious groups, civilians from war-affected areas or any other group of people. Concentration camps are usually being established during the war and prisoners are being detained without trial.

During the three wars, from 1914-1918, 1941-1945 and 1990-2000, Serbian people experienced true suffering when the brutality of their oppressors reached a peak in the physical and psychological torment of hundreds of thousands of innocent victims which were tortured, raped and killed just because of having different religious or national background.

Establishment of the camps for Serbs was not coincidental and it wasn’t conducted by a small group of soldiers at their own discretion. Quite the opposite, creation of these camps was systematically planned. Such plans and their implementation were directed by the highest representatives of military and administrative authorities which governed the territories on which these camps were established.

During the Second World War, in the territory of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia more than 70 concentration camps were established with 40 of them being located in the territory of the Independent State of Croatia (the widely known is Jasenovac and the complex of camps Jadovno).

Fifty years later, when the Communist Yugoslavia was dismantled and the war began, authorities of the ex-republics of Yugoslavia were involved in establishment of camps since their discrete members had received such tasks. On the territory of Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina during 1991-1997 there were at least 778 camps and private prisons (according to the record of Sava Vidanovic). On the territory of Kosovo and Metohia more than 100 camps and prisons were established by Albanian terrorists in the period of 1997-2000.
