View of the Jewish cemetery in the Djakovo labor camp.

The camp was located in the building of the former Cereale flour mill. Two transports, including 1,830 Jewish women and children and 50 Serbian girls, were sent to Djakovo in December 1941. At the end of February 1942, another 1,200 women and children arrived from the Stara Gradiska concentration camp. The prisoners died in large numbers from typhus and malnutrition. In the summer of 1942 the prisoners were transported to Jasenovac, where they were all killed in the Gradina. 516 victims were buried in the Djakovo cemetery.
