Zagreb – Dotrscina Forest

In north-eastern Zagreb lies a forest area called Dotrscina. Between 1941 and 1945 between 7000 – 10 000 people were killed by the nationalist Ustasha regime at various sites in the forest. Those who were murdered were anti-fascists, Roma or Jews and had prior to the their executions been incarcerated in prisons. After they were murdered, they were buried in mass graves scattered throughout the forest.

Current status: Monument (2023).

Location: 45°50'34.27" N 16°01'39.87" E

Get there: Car.

My comment:

The entire forest is today a memorial park with several monuments connected by paths. It also seems to be a walking area for people.
