The Turkish ruled the town until 31 January 1878. At that time the town of Vranje had population of approximately 8 thousand. Then the Balkan wars against Turks began, followed by the First and Second World War. During the First World War the town was seized by the Bulgarian Army. Serbian troops liberated the town in 1918. The town paid for the freedom a heavy price - 514 people died in the first front line and 335 people were executed. During the Second World War the Nazi Army entered the city of Vranje on 9th April 1941. Later, the city was taken over by Bulgarian fascists. The war for liberation lasted nearly 4 years. During that time approximately 700 people were shot to death, 4 000 interned and 956 died in combat. The city of Vranje was liberated on 7th September 1944.
