Summary/Abstract: Most of the Hungarians who were taken for forced labour to the Serbian camp of Bor during World War II perished there. Yet most of the casualties happened not at the site of the forced labour but in the course of the countermarch. The greatest mass execution took place at Cservenka, where some 1000 Jewish forced labourers were killed overnight. One of the few survivors put to writing the horrific events he had lived through. The paper publishes the memoirs with an introductory study.
