Traditions of sacrificing people fall into the most terrible activities of the human civilization. It is the custom of killing the old, but closest members of the family. It could be found not only in our country; it was present among the people of Northern Europe as well, but also in the American Indians and the Japanese. The question is whether it was an ancient type of euthanasia. Lapot, present throughout history and in our region, shows a great river in child-parents relationships, the origin of which is Oedipus, the mythical hero of Greece. The myth of Lapot has often been a subject of interest among anthropologists and ethnologists such as Sima Trojanovic, Tihomir Djordjevic, Veselin Cakjanovic and Bojan Jovanovic. It has been the motive to some artists for their works. Film director Goran Paskaljevic made as his thesis a film about Lapot named “The Legend of Lapot” in 1972. A local amateur artist, Zvonimir Pavkovic, from the village of Stipina in the vicinity of Knjazevac, has recently made a documentary "Lapot". In 1992 lapot was the motive for the novel of the same name to Zivojin Pavlovic - a painter, writer and film director.
