This monument commemorates the 24 executed Partisan soldiers captured and executed on this spot by Ustaše forces as they were attempting to rise up against Axis oppression and occupation. The executed were part of the 1st Partisan Unit of Split, who were amongst some of the first in Europe to rise up against Axis occupation and some of the first to be executed for trying to. Many of the men who joined the unit were part of the Worker's Football Club of Split.
