Lepoglava Memorial Graveyard

Description

The Lepoglava Memorial Cemetery is a site in which commemorates the victims who died at the town's prison camp, as well as the many thousands of people who were executed at this site of the memorial during WWII. In December of 1943, the Ustaše began to convert the prison to operate as a death camp, with the name of the facility being newly designated as the "Lepoglava Workers' Camp for Men, Women and Children". While exact counts of those who died at the Lepoglava Prison Camp are not known with precise accuracy, reports indicate that the camp was directly involved in the deaths of multiple thousands of people, with some sources citing figures of up to 5,000.
The monument was designed by the Montenegrin artist Stevan Luketić and opened to the public during a ceremony hold on July 10th, 1981, a date which commemorated exactly 38 years since the Partisan's first liberation of the prison at Lepoglava.
