Deliblato Memorial to Jews murdered in ?ardak near Deliblato Deliblato Sands Nature Reserve 1955 The monument in Deliblato was erected on July 7, 1955. It is one of the first monuments commemorating the Jewish victims of World War II, whose erection was initiated by the Yugoslav state organs. The monument is made of stone and has an amorphous, organic form. It bears the inscription (in Serbo-Croatian) that reads: 'On October 9, 1941, the occupier shot 430 Jews from the camp in Banjica. In June 1944, they burned bones of the shot in order to destroy the traces of their evil crime.' The erection of the monument was initiated by the Association of Fighters of the National War of Liberation of the Kovin region. After the political changes of the nineties of the last century, the annual ceremonies commemorating the victims have halted at this site. The memorial has been for a long time forgotten, although the local Association of Fighters of the National War of Liberation, published a report in 2013 with a request to put signposts to the site and clean the area. On March 12, 2018, on the occasion of Yom HaShoah-Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Jewish community of Pančevo held a commemoration at the site. President of the Pančevo Jewish Community, David Montijas, commemorated the victims and crimes against Jews during World War II.
