In Belgrade, July 1941, the Germans set up a camp in former military barracks called Banjica. Germans imprisoned Serbian communists, partisans and later Serbian jews. The commander of the camp was Gestapo officer, Willy Friedrich. Although it was a Nazi camp, Serbs also served, and the camp was subsequently divided into a german and a serbian section. About 24,000 people from Banjica were murdered in gas wagons, but also by shooting at the execution site Jajinci. The camp was closed in September, 1944.

Current status: Preserved with museum (2009).

Address: Pavla Jurišica Šturma 33, Belgrad.

Get there: Bus from central Belgrade.

My comment:

After the war, Banjica regained its original purpose as military barracks and the museum is a small part of the military camp. The museum has limited opening hours and all information is in Serbian.
