The Liberation of Belgrade
On the occasion of the commemoration of the seventieth anniversary of the liberation of Belgrade (20 October 1944), a map was developed with the key directions of movement of Yugoslav People’s Liberation Army and the Red Army units. It was based on the 1944 map of Belgrade and the data were taken from Milan Radanović’s book Oslobođenje. Beograd 1944. (Liberation, Belgrade 1944), Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, Belgrade 2014.
The authors of the map are Milovan Pisarri and Đorđe Balmazović (Škart).
