    Memorial at the site of the Jasenovac Camp

    Film Provenance
    The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum saved the Jasenovac Memorial Collection from deterioration in 2000. The collection was stored in an archive in Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, where it had been moved during the war in the early 1990s. After signing agreements with appropriate government officials of Croatia and Republika Srpska in 2001, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum transported the collection's thousands of 3-dimensional artifacts, photographs, documents, films, and oral testimonies to Washington. Materials were conserved, photographed, microfilmed, or otherwise copied for access, and returned to the Jasenovac Memorial [Memorijalni muzej Jasenovac], located on the site of the former concentration camp near Zagreb, Croatia, in November 2001.
    Originally labeled Can #11
