Young Jews from the partisan movement in Yugoslavia.
These young men belonged to the fighting unit formed on the island of Rab in early September 1943, prior to Fascist Italy's surrender. It was named "Rabski Bataljon" for the island. Some of those in the photo fell in combat.
See "Pinkas Hakehillot - Yugoslavia" published by Yad Vashem, 1988, page 321 (in Hebrew).
