Zeitenlik (Greece), Serbian Military Graveyard

"Srpsko vojnicko groblje" u Solunu

"Zeitenlik (Greek: Ζέιτενλικ, Serbian Cyrillic: Зејтинлик) is an Allied military cemetery and World War I memorial park in Thessaloniki, the largest in Greece. It contains the graves of the Serbian, French, British, Italian and Russian soldiers and Bulgarian prisoners of war, who died in the battles on the Salonika front during the World War I. The largest part of the complex is the Serbian Military Graveyard, which contains the remains of c. 7,500 soldiers. The French sector contains the remains of 8,000 French soldiers. The Italian sector holds about 3,000 graves; the British sector holds about 2,000 graves, and there is also the Russian sector with about 400 graves.

The complex is located on the place where the Main Hospital of the Serbian Army was located during the war.

Today, the keeper, host and curator of the Serbian Military Cemetery at Zeitenlik is Đorđe Mihailović (1928), who lives in the keeper's house with his wife and daughter. Although new burials at Zeitinlik are forbidden, a special decree was issued that allows Đorđe to be the last person buried here when he dies."
