“abandoned, haunted island”

Daksa is a small uninhabited island in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea. It is situated near Dubrovnik in front of Rijeka Dubrovačka ria. The area of the island is about 0.07 km2, the highest point is 24 m above sea level. The Daksa's Franciscan monastery was built in 1281. The island was the site of the Daksa massacre upon Yugoslav partisans entrance of Dubrovnik in late October 1944. The mayor of Dubrovnik Niko Koprivica was among those executed. In September 2009, authorities discovered the remains of six victims in the area. Soon after this, the Daksa 1944/45 Association announced that 48 bodies were discovered on the island. The president of the Croatian Helsinki Committee Ivo Banac called for an investigation into what exactly occurred during the massacre. The members of the Croatian Bishops' Conference visited the site in October, 2009.
