Hall 2 - BOARD 5


At the time when the wounded were arriving in Valjevo in a growing number, the town authorities issued an order that all the major premises in the town must remain open during the night in order to accommodate the newcomers until they can be examined and have medical treatment. They also organized patrols working day and night on the reception of the wounded, and carriages and carts were engaged for their transportation. The citizens of Valjevo demonstrated full solidarity. In addition to allowing their places to accommodate the wounded, carriages and carts for transport, the people of Valjevo organized a Committee which will welcome and help the wounded, the members of which raised a pavilion near the Railway Station for distribution of collected foodstuffs. Many women of Valjevo, as voluntary nurses, tended the wounded and assisted the doctors day and night.
