Extermination Camp Sisak

The Ustaše extermination camp Sisak was specialized in the systematic murder of Serbian, Jewish and gypsy children. Sisak was established on 12 July 1942 and liberated by partisans in May 1945.

The extermination camp was a sub-camp of the notorious Jasenovac complex. There were approximately 6.600 children imprisoned in the Sisak extermination camp. 4.000 children died through poisoning and starvation.

A fountain with seven statues of playing children, is placed at the former camp site in memory of the children of Sisak. The former concentration camp's main structure, a four-story building, is now home of a Discotheque Party Club.
