Victims memorial

Ever year, on the 27th of January in Gajana, the locals organize Memorial Day to remember the 27th of January 1944, the day that marked the local history and destiny of every family in the town. The town was attacked by the enemy army, the houses were burned and the people were lined up for the firing squad. For many, the nightmare of the concentration camp in Auschwitz became reality. The memory on the horrible tragedy can be read on the monument at the entrance to the town of Gajana, along with the carved names of 15 victims and around 20 of those deported.
