Photographer's Note

(Old) Catholic part of the cemetery in Erdevik.

Until the end of World War II in Erdevik there was a large community of Germans. Almost all were moved in Germany as the German army withdrew from the area occupied in 1941 (out of fear of retribution for crimes committed against Serbs, Jews and gypsies). Since then, the cemetery was forgotten, some parts are completely covered with shrubs and bushes.

On the photo is part of the cemetery which is periodically maintained, but in sad shape, too.
