The team of secanje.nl climbed on 18/058/2018 the mountain Kajmakčalan which is a 2,524 meters high mountain on the Macedonian-Greek border. Between September 12 and September 30 1916, a WWI-battle took place between the Serbian army and the Bulgarian army on this mountain. It was the first victory for the Serbian army after it had been defeated by Austro-Hungarian, German and Bulgarian armies in the winter of 1915/16 and therefore it has a significant place in the history of Serbia.

It is highly unlikely that the soldiers who died in the Netherlands haven’t been on this mountain when the battle took place.
