The grave markers were donated to Yad Vashem by Leah Maestro from Sarajevo, who heads a research & restoration project in the Jewish cemetery in which victims of the Djakovo camp were buried. Over time, the tin grave markers began to deteriorate due to the weather, and with the assistance and support of the Jewish Historical Museum of Belgrad (Jevrejski istorijski muzej, Beograd, Srbija) and of members of the Jewish communities of former Yugoslavia, an intensive survey was carried out and the original markers were replaced. Five of the original grave markers were subsequently donated to the artifacts collection of Yad Vashem by the Jewish community of Sarajevo.These marked the graves of three women - Abinun Simha, Albahari Matilda, Shalom Rahela - and two children - Kabiljo Rena and Levi Lidicia.
