Mapping the Holocaust – The Topovske Šupe Camp
The Topovške Šupe Nazi camp was active between August and November 1941. It was located in a densely populated part of the city of Belgrade. About 5,000 male Jews and about 1,500 male Roma passed through it. It was one of the first camps specifically for Jews and Roma in World War II. Little is still known about it.

Its victims were male Jews from Belgrade, Smederevo and Banat, as well as male Roma from Belgrade. They were killed as hostages in the fall of 1941 retaliations by the German army at the execution sites near Belgrade. The Serbian collaborationist forces of the Milan Nedić government actively participated in their arrests.

The buildings in which the detainees were housed are now privately owned and are scheduled for demolition. In early 2020, the Republic of Serbia National Assembly adopted the Staro Sajmište Memorial Centre Act in which the Topovske Šupe camp is mentioned as part of the future Memorial. It is the first step in its preservation.
