LIST OF INDIVIDUAL VICTIMS OF
JASENOVAC CONCENTRATION CAMP

Between August 1941 and 22 April 1945, Jasenovac Concentration Camp, comprising Bročice, Krapje, Jasenovac and Stara Gradiška Camps, several camp farms in the surrounding forcibly evicted villages, and many execution sites on both banks of the River Sava, a system called “Assembly and Labour Camps” by the Ustashas, was a place of death for men, women and children, killed because of their religious, national or ideological affiliation.

The Jasenovac victims are not just numbers. They are men, women and children, with names and personal histories.

As a means of paying respect to the inmates of Jasenovac and in a desire to preserve their memory as a warning to future generations, the Jasenovac Memorial Site has compiled a List of Individual Victims of Jasenovac Concentration Camp and made it available to visitors and to the public for the first time since the opening of the Memorial Museum in 1968.

We have taken the names of all those whose deaths are noted as having taken place in the Jasenovac Concentration Camp complex from the most comprehensive list compiled so far of victims of the Second World War in the territories of former Yugoslavia (Poimenični List of victims Drugog svjetskog rata), which contains 597,323 names, and which was compiled on the basis of lists of names of victims produced by the National Commission for the Establishment of Crimes of the Occupiers and Their Helpers (1946) and additional data collected by the Federation of War Veterans’ Organisations concerning war crimes in 1964 and published by the Federal Institute of Statistics (of the Federal Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia).

We have used hundreds of sources (books, documents, photographs, statements given by relatives and friends of the Jasenovac victims, field research and photographs of monuments to the victims of Fascist terrorism), of which 169 are mentioned in abbreviation in the List. We have made critical comparisons of data for each individual and thus compiled a list of the men, women and children who died in Jasenovac Concentration Camp.

The list contains biographical details of the victims (name and surname, father’s name, place, district and date of birth, ethnic affiliation), how the person met his or her death (means of death, person responsible, year and place of death, camp or execution site where the victim was killed) and information on the sources which were used in each individual case, as well as conflicting details from different sources for each victim.

Working in this way, we have collected (until March 2013) a list of dates, names and details for 83,145 victims. According to the data gathered, 39,570 men, 23,474 women and 20,101 children under the age of 14 were killed in Jasenovac Concentration Camp.

The List of Individual Victims of the Jasenovac Concentration Camp is the result of work done so far by experts from the Jasenovac Memorial Site, and it is not complete. Along with its museum and educational activities, the Jasenovac Memorial Site will continue to work on the List and invites visitors and the public to submit new or additional information, so that our joint efforts may produce as complete a list as possible. Every name represents a person with a victim identity rescued from oblivion, so that the crimes committed during the 1,337 days of the existence of the Ustasha camp in Jasenovac may never, ever be repeated.

We apologise most sincerely to the families and friends of the Jasenovac victims for any possible erors or omissions in the List, with the assurance that these are not intentional.
