The Topovske supe camp was one of the first camps for Jews and Roma in Europe. From August to November 1941, about 5,000 male Jews and 1,500 male Roma passed through it only to be killed in the killing sites around Belgrade. In historiography, there is no study about the camp. Today, the site is forgotten, abandoned, unknown to the general public, its demolition due to the announced construction of a shopping centre imminent.
The tour is part of the research project “Mapping the Holocuast – The Topovske supe camp” supported by the Federation of Jewish Communities in Serbia.
