Created in 1879, the Jewish cemetery in Djakovo possesses the unique feature of containing individual burial sites for victims of the Shoah.

A total of 566 Jewish victims of Djakovo’s Ustashi concentration camp, murdered in 1942, are enterred here. A collective monument has been erected as well. The  cemetery is located on the ulica Vatroslava Doneganija near the municipal cemetery.

The illuminated registry of the burial society (Hevra Kadisha) of Djakovo, which dates back to 1860, is preserved in the Jewish Historical Museum of Belgrade.
