"The Jewish cemetery in Belgrade is the largest Jewish memorial and monument in Serbia. It covers an area of 12,748 square meters and includes a memorial fund of over 4,000 tombstones. After the almost complete destruction of the Belgrade Jewish community in the Holocaust, the cemetery remained one of the most important testimonies of its existence. Until the Second World War it was called the New Cemetery and was owned by the Church-School Jewish Municipality of the Sephardic Order. It served primarily for the purpose of burial of the Jews of the Sephardic provenance, with an occasional burial of members of the Ashkenazi Jewish community", stands at the beginning of this bilingual monograph in Serbian and English language by Barbare Panic, published by the Jewish Historical Museum in Belgrade.
