Duty to remember the victims for our freedom – 24sata online

Today, the President of the Assembly of the City of Belgrade, Nikola Nikodijević, laid a wreath at the Jajinci Memorial Park as part of the celebration of the Day of Remembrance for the Suffering of Serbs, Roma and Jews in Jajinci. The Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Ana Brnabić, led the state delegation of the Republic of Serbia, which paid tribute to the victims.

"Serbia is proud of its role in the Second World War and of all the victims who gave their lives for freedom,” said the President of the City Assembly, Nikola Nikodijevic. He pointed out that it was important to nurture the culture of remembrance and mark historical events so that, as he said, we would not re-experience the horrors that the Serbian people survived from 1941 to 1945.

– The culture of remembrance is important for every nation and that is why the City of Belgrade and the Republic of Serbia pay great attention to important events and places in our history – Nikodijevic told reporters at the Jajinci Memorial Complex.

Nikodojevic said that Jajinci was the largest execution site in the Second World War on the territory of Serbia, where, as he stated, more than 80,000 Serbs, Roma and Jews died. He added that people were killed there because of their national and religious affiliation, as well as those who did not want to accept the occupation and the ideas of fascism.

– It is our duty to remember all those who suffered here for the sake of our future – Nikodijevic said.

He emphasized that Serbia should not be ashamed of its role in the Second World War because it was on the side of the winner, on the side of anti-fascism and the freedom world, and that it made a huge sacrifice so that we could live in the modern world today. Nikodijevic stated that fascism still occurs in various forms and that it is important to recognize and cut it down, which is why our task is to point out to future generations all the horrors of World War II and not to allow criminals and victims to identify, and not to agree. on the revision of history.

– We must teach future generations from primary school about what fascism is, about the Second World War, the execution sites in Jajinci, at Sajmište, in Jasenovac… If we do not cultivate a culture of memory, if we do not know our history well and in the right way passed on to future generations, we are in danger of reliving it – stated Nikodijević.
