SOANSKI SAMAC (Republic of Srpska) Print

 

"The cemetery was established in 1906 and was in use until 1941, when the Ustaše killed most of the Jews of Šamac, destroyed their prayer house and damaged their burial place. No Jews returned after the Second World War and a railway crossing was placed on the site in 1948. The site is now a dump, though the bases of tombstones are still recognisable beneath the rubbish.
