During World War II, when Gornja Rijeka was part of the Independent State of Croatia, it was the site of a concentration camp. An unknown number of women, some of them with children, were interned there between November 1941 and April 1942; the camp's population was estimated as between 200 and 400 at any given time. From June 1942, the camp housed approximately 400 orphans left behind from the Kozara Offensive. After an outbreak of typhoid fever that caused more than 100 deaths among the children, the camp was shut down in August 1942.
