Memorial to Fallen Fighters and Victims of Fascist Terror
Endowment of Miloš Vojinović
Memorial to the Fallen Fighters and Victims of the Fascist Terror of the City of Inđija 1941-1945. It was originally placed (1984) in the hall of the “Đorđe Natošević” library, and is now located in the Serbian Orthodox Cemetery in Inđija.
As early as 10 April 1941 the Wehrmacht entered Inđija and established its rule. As Srem belonged to the Independent State of Croatia, Inđija was formally under this pro-Nazi creation. 30,185 people died in Srem during the war. During the Red Army’s operations to liberate the Balkans and Central Europe from the Nazis, the Partisans and Soviet soldiers liberated the city on 22 October 1944. The local German population fled together with the Nazis.
The conceptual design of the memorial was given by Miloš Vojinović, an academy-trained painter – graphic artist from Inđija and an educator at the Elementary school “Petar Kočić” in Inđija. The memorial is made of white marble and consists of: a pedestal and a memorial with the names of fallen fighters and victims of fascist terror.
The memorial consists of seven pillars, on which the names of fallen fighters and victims of fascist terror are engraved.
The monument was erected by the Alliance of Associations of Veterans of the People’s Liberation War of Yugoslavia (SUBNOR) of the Municipality of Inđija.
