Pinkijev Grave

About half-way along the road between Bešenovački Prnjavor and the crossroad at Crveni Čot is the Ledina and the dirt road that leads to Pinkijev grob, ie. Mala Remeta. A little forgotten, and in the shadow of nearby summer houses, is the memorial site to the national hero Pinki. 

Boško Palkovljević "Pinki" was was born in the nearby village Manđelos. A communist and rebel, led by ideals, he stood out with his heroic actions against the occupation during World War 2. He died on this place 10. June 1942. under attack by Germans, as he was trying to stop them so the people can retreat into the woods. His remains are in the memorial cemetery in Sremska Mitrovica.
