Mošorin (Serbian Cyrillic: Мошорин) is a village in Serbia. It is located in the Titel municipality, South Bačka District. Mošorin is situated in the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, in the south-eastern part of Bačka, known as Šajkaška. The village has a Serb ethnic majority and its population numbering 2,763 people (2002 census).


The village was first time mentioned in the 16th century. During the Ottoman rule (16th-17th century), it was populated by ethnic Serbs. Since 1699, it was under Habsburg rule and was part of the Habsburg Military Frontier (Šajkaš Battalion). In 1848-1849, Mošorin was part of the Serbian Vojvodina, a Serb autonomous region within Austrian Empire, but since 1849, it is again part of the Military Frontier, until 1873 when it was included into Bačka-Bodrog county.

Since 1918, Mošorin is part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (later known as Yugoslavia). Between 1918 and 1922 it was part of Bačka county, between 1922 and 1929 part of Belgrade oblast, and between 1929 and 1941 part of the Danube Banovina.

In 1941, the village was occupied by Axis troops and attached to Horthy's Hungary. In the 1942 raid, performed on Orthodox Christmas, the Hungarian troops killed 205 villagers, including 94 men, 41 women, 44 children and 26 old persons, of whom 170 were Serbs, 34 Romani, and 1 Hungarian. Part of the corpses of the killed villagers was thrown into the iced waters of the river Tisa, while other part was buried into four mass graves.

Axis occupation ended in 1944. Since then Mošorin was part of the new Socialist Yugoslavia. Between 1992 and 2003 it was part of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, between 2003 and 2006 part of Serbia and Montenegro, and since 2006, it is part of an independent Serbia.
