Do not forget crimes! -
"The crime is not remembered in order to get back to the crime,
but the crime is remembered so it wouldn't be repeated!" - Proverb

Crimes happened to Serbian people during the 20th and 21st century made them weaken and downgraded to inconceivable consequences. In the early 20th century, the Serbian population was estimated at 7 million. In the first half of the 21st century, the population is more or less the same. This fact brings to light the lack of natural population growth in 100 years, the period during which Serbian people faced extermination in Balkan wars, two world wars, and a homeland war.

During these wars, the Serbian nation has lost millions of people. The progress of society was stopped, a significant number of men in their best age and women who could have delivered babies, was lost, and a lot of children who could also have left descendants were killed. What’s more, even the old people who hadn’t been able to defend themselves from slaughterers were also killed.

During two world wars, thousands of Serbs have experienced suffering in concentration camps where they were tortured in monstrous ways, the women raped, men humiliated…The Dante’s hell is incomparable to the torture experienced by Serbs in these camps.

The crimes didn’t happen only in camps; on the contrary, these are only a small part of the Saga of the Crimes against Serbs. What was happening included wiping out entire families, either by slaughtering or burning in their houses. There are numerous testimonies about these crimes, and the only reason they were killed was because of their nationality or faith.

In the table below, there is a list of crimes happened to Serbs that we have in our database and archive. If you believe some information is missing, feel free to send via the Contact page.
