Ovčara is located in a solitary spot, several kilometers from Vukovar's town center, next to the former agricultural co-operative buildings. On 20 November 1991, 200 people of non-Serbian nationality were killed here. Patients, civilians and hospital staff were taken together to Ovčara from the Vukovar hospital on 18 November 1991. Here they were massacred by shooting and, on the same spot, their bodies were piled one on top of the other in a previously prepared ditch and covered with soil. The monument, unveiled on 29 December 1998, which is a gray obelisk with the dove of peace carved into the top part, reads: “In memory of 200 injured Croatian soldiers and civilians from the Vukovar hospital killed in the Greater Serbian aggression against the Republic of Croatia.” At the New Cemetery in Vukovar, the enemy's forces gathered the remains of persons killed in various ways during the attacks on Vukovar. This tomb is said to have resulted from the sanitization of the terrain, which means that remains are buried here of people who were killed in different locations, temporarily buried elsewhere and subsequently moved to this tomb.Here, at the New Cemetery, is the largest mass grave in Europe since World War II. 938 bodies were exhumed and 938 white crosses set up on that spot. In the central part of the Cemetery, on 5 August 2000, a monument created by Ms. ?ur?a Ostoja was erected. The monument is made of patinated bronze, it is four meters high, and its center features an “air cross” and an eternal flame. The Memorial Centre is open every day from 10-17 hours. Through the permanent memory of home visitors conducted by an expert guide. Brochures are free for visitors, a souvenir shop raises funds needed to maintain the memorial home.Notice of arrival at no. 032/512 345 More: www.turizamvukovar.hr
