In 1833 the first Serb Grammar School south of the Sava and Drina rivers was founded in Kragujevac. Over the last fifty years this city of the Serbian schooling bears a symbol of grief: in the Memorial Park in Sumarice there a monument to the executed pupils and teachers of this Grammar School in World War II. Wanting to give a frightening example to the whole of Serbia, German fascists executed in Kragujevac in one day only, on October 21, 1941, 7,000 citizens, and among them about 300 pupils and 18 teachers of the Kragujevac Grammar School, including 15 boys from 8 to 15-year old.
