Photographs supplied by Stephen Warren

The plaque commemorates Serbians who died or were killed as a result of persecution between 1941 and 1947, and for the Allied cause in World War Two.

The World War Two persecution of Serbs, also known as the Serbian Genocide, refers to the widespread persecution of Serbs that included extermination, expulsions and forced religious conversions of large numbers of ethnic Serbs by the Ustaše regime in the Independent State of Croatia, and killings of Serbs by Albanian collaborators and Axis occupying forces during World War Two.

Overall, it is estimated that some 40,000 to 60,000 Serbs were killed and another 200,000 driven out of Kosovo during World War Two.
