Law on Staro Sajmiste Memorial Center adopted

The members of the National Assembly of Serbia adopted the Law on Staro Sajmiste Memorial Center on February 24 with a majority vote of 159, for the purpose of, as said in the proposal, fulfilling the duty of keeping a permanent memory of the victims of the Holocaust and the WW2 genocide.

The memorial center will collect and exhibit material from museums and archives in order to ensure a “lasting memory of the victims of the Holocaust”.

Some 10,000 Serbs, 7,000 Jews, and at least 60 Roma died at Staro Sajmiste in 1941 and 1942. 

After the war, nothing was done to preserve the site of the former concentration camp. A monument to the victims was erected nearby in 1995.
