Between October 14th and 20th of 1991, after the occupation of the village of Sotin, Serbian military units have forcibly taken away a large number of non-Serb inhabitants from their homes and took them to a concentration camp in the village of Negoslavci where they were subjected to abuse and interrogation. The occupiers held the remaining Croats in the village of Sotin in custody, forced them into labour camps and gradually killed. At the beginning of expatriation, 13 of them were killed, and the others were banished on December 27th.
