On the 19th March we visited Azanja, a village in the Podunavlje district approximately 80 kilometres South-East of Serbia’s capital Belgrade.

Milovan Milojević was born in 1889 in Azanja and died 21th January 1919 in Garderen, the Netherlands. Thanks to Žarko Talijan and Damir Živković and a family member of Milovan Milojević we can write that we traced another soldier back to his roots.
