According to historian Momčilo Pavlović, who is the secretary of the commission, some of the first mass executions after World War II occurred in Zaječar.

Estimates say that more than 800 people died there.

According to the Zaječar historical archive, in early 1944, the military court confirmed convictions for several hundred people. Almost all public persons of that time were proclaimed enemies of the state.

At the place where the Zaječar Primary Court now stands, there was a central prison after World War II, from which witnesses say that about 200 people were taken to be executed.

In between 1944 and 1946, about 800 people were killed in the region of Zaječar.

The symbolically marked mass grave since on Kraljevica hill will be the first to be excavated by the commission.
