On November 5, 1991, shells came from direction of the Njemci village, and the savage attack surprised the inhabitants of Šid.  The shells were falling from the Western part of the city to the East and South. They were flying over houses and residential buildings, causing panic, blood and injures; the ambulance could not reach all those who needed it . In the Southern part of the city the Agricultural complex was hit, and Djordje Manojlovic, Miroslav Šerfezi and Slobodan Mihaljevic have been killed.  Shelling from the Croatian side didn’t spare the kindergarten ” Jelica Stanivuković Šilja” . Director of the kindergarten Jasmina Varga said that the fragments fell around the kindergarten  and hit the children’s dining room and the roof soon collapsed.  Luckily the children were not in the building.
