In 1990, the city of Belgrade and the local Jewish community dedicated a memorial sculpture, Menora u plamenu English: "Menorah in Flames" in the Dorćol quarter, which had been the Jewish quarter of Belgrade The sculpture commemorates over 10,000 Serbian Jews, the vast majority from Belgrade, who were murdered by SS and Wehrmacht army units or deported to concentration camps during the Holocaust in Serbia[2]
