This camp was military-civilan camp, and there were members of the Dinara Division,, soldiers and their families, Serbian Volunteers-Sumadija Division and their families, Slovenian Domobranci -home Guard with famliies, and some Croats, also. There was a Hospital, Tehater,C
C hurch, gimnasioum, Thelogical Seminary and many more different courses. Rajko Djurdjevic and Major Moma Djordjevic, with the help of YMCA managed to publish Serb- English dictionary, and quite a number of books were printed also. Soccer clubs and sport discipline were present, ll together, life in the camp was similar to a medium size Serbian town -people were getting married, baptized, and near by, in the town of Batipalja was cemetery where about one hundred were buried. Years later, all buried there were transferred to a place in Italian town Bari. Also, in January of 1946 the Hospital was transferred to a much better place in Mercatello, close to Salerno.
