The Bar massacre (Albanian: Masakra e Tivarit) was the 1945 killing of 400–2,000 Albanians in Bar by Yugoslav Partisans during World War II.
The victims were Albanian recruits from Kosovo, who were supposed to fight the retreating Wehrmacht. Their Yugoslav commanders collected them together, disarmed them and let them walk, in three different groups, from Prizren to Bar by the route Prizren–Zhur–Kukës–Puk–Shkodër–Bar in Northern Albania.
The recruits were mistreated while on the way and when they arrived in Bar, they were executed
by their Yugoslav guards.
