HistoryEdit

Until 1920, the village was called Križevci. After the Salonika Front, Serbian volunteers settled the village and changed its name into Karadžićevo. The village was named after Vuk Karadzic. During the Croatian War of Independence, Karadžićevo was controlled by the self-proclaimed SAO Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Syrmia. Croat special police stationed in Varaždin attacked the village which made it suffer major damage although the SAO won the battle.[5]

Demographic historyEdit

According to the 1991 census, the village was inhabited by a majority of Serbs (83.21%), and minority of Croats (14.59%).[6]
