Exhibition commemorating the Holocaust presented in Serbia

In cooperation with the Yad Vashem, Historical Archives of the City of Novi Sad and Jewish Community of Novi Sad, the exhibition “Shoah, How was it humanly possible?“ was introduced in Novi Sad, the City Hall of the Government Autonomous of Vojvodina, to commemorate the Holocaust Remembrance Day in Serbia.

The exhibition was presented in Bečej, Zrenjanin, and Kikinda over the course of June. With the support of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress the exhibition will be further presented at the “Mahar” conference 2019, and in the region as well.

The exhibition deals with major historical aspects of the Holocaust, beginning with Jewish life in pre-Holocaust Europe and ending with the liberation of the Nazi concentration and extermination camps across the continent and the remarkable return to life of the survivors.

“This timely exhibition reminds us of the enormous potential danger of rising anti-Semitism. We at the EAJC appreciate the fruitful collaboration between the Jewish Communities of Serbia and the Yad Vashem, which will not leave anyone indifferent”, - said EAJC President Mikhail Mirilashvili.

Expert team: Petar Đurđev, Historian and Director, Historical Archives of the City of Novi Sad; Edita Jankov, Vice-president of  JCNS, JCNS Cultural Coordinator; Goran Levi, Member of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Serbia and JCNS member.

The panels feature explanatory texts, interspersed with personal stories of the victims, quotes, original photographs and images of relevant artifacts.
