September 6, 1944 – Allied destruction of Lekovac

September 6, 1944. On this day Western Air Forces savagely bombed Serbian the city of Leskovac. September 6th is birthday of Serbian King Peter II and
British, American and French ,,allies” targeted schools, maternity wards, hospitals, libraries, residential buildings, justifying the “errors” in high altitude from which the bombs were dropped.

However, the fact is that the mainly Serbian cities have in any occasion been bombed during the holidays, such as Easter 1944th (When Belgrade was destroyed and more than 30,000 people have been killed), or the King’s birthday – as in Leskovac.
During the bombing over 1600 civilians were killed and the center – the old core of the city – was completely destroyed.
