“Bloody Fairy Tale” is a poem written by our famous poetess Desanka Maksimovic after hearing the details of the horrible crime in Kragujevac, which were carried out by the German occupying forces against the innocent Serb population. The Kragujevac massacre is one of the largest and most monstrous crimes in the Second World War that was committed against civilians in one place and in one day. Workers, peasants, professors and their students were killed together.
Monument to archers and professors “is certainly one of the most famous memorials in Kragujevac. The monument was erected in 1963, at the site where about 300 pupils from Kragujevac gymnasium and other secondary schools were shot, along with professors.The monument is in the form of a Roman number five, because according to the school system at that time, students were fifth grade, high school, and often referred to as “Fifth Three” by the department of the students of the First Male Gymnasium.
what’s written on the monument are telling the teacher * shoot, I’m still holding the time *
