It is now 100 years ago that the 91 Serbian WWI soldiers of our research died in the Netherlands. Since 2012 the team of secanje.nl did everything to give them a name, a face and a place in history so that they would not be forgotten. Of these 91 soldiers we found 12 families: some of them shared their stories, some of them did not. For those who did share their stories you will find these stories here on our website . We are grateful to all those who shared their stories and to all the people who helped us.
Now it is 100 years later after those 91 Serbian WWI heroes died in the Netherlands and not on the top of the Kajmakčalan mountain or during the Kolubara battles. There is nobody to read their names, but we do it here now , as we did not forget them, 100 years later. Two weeks ago the team of secanje.nl did already light symbolically a candle by the monument for Miloš Gavrović from Miločaj, one of the soldiers who died in the Netherlands (in Usselo).
