Jasenovac Memorial Site was founded with the task of compiling, scientifically processing and exhibiting museum and archive material concerning the Ustasha Jasenovac Concentration Camp, to care for the memorial area and the mass graves of the former Ustasha camp and, by telling the truth about what happened to the victims of the Jasenovac camps, to build an attitude of respect for human differences among young people today.

The activities of the Memorial Museum include co-operating with survivors, projects involving exhibitions and publications, as well as organising commemorative events to honour the Jasenovac victims.

The main purpose of Jasenovac Memorial Site is honoring and remembering all victims of Jasenovac Concentration Camp, condemning all the motives for the formation of the concentration camp, and condemning all the crimes committed there so that they are never repeated.
