Memorial Sanski Most Massacre

The massacre of Sanski Most (also called the massacre of Šušnjar) took place in August 1941. In the town of Sanski Most approximately 5,500 Serb civilians and some 50 Jews were murdered by Ustaše forces and Bosnian Muslim militias. In addition, there were mass rapes of women and girls instead.
The victims were buried in mass graves, many of which are on the Šušnjar Hill. Here is now the monument, which is highly neglected.
