In September, President of Museum’s Steering Committee, His Grace Bishop Jovan of Slavonia and Dr. William Taylor, Reverend Canon of St. John’s Notting Hill Church and president of Anglican and Eastern Churches Association, have agreed that, within annual program ‘Constantinople lectures’, His Grace hold a lecture on New Martyrs of Jasenovac.

His Grace proposed to the Museum that, within aforementioned program, prepare and present exhibition under the title ‘Suffering of children in Independent State of Croatia – Concentration camp Jasenovac’.

For us, this was exceptionally important and unique opportunity! Using the materials from our Documentation center, we have prepared the exhibition. Of great help were, regarding the graphic and technical aspects of exhibition primarily, two experts from Historical Museum of Serbia, Ms. Izabela Martinov Tomović and Ms. Slađana Bojković. Ministry of Foreign Affairs has provided its help with the transportation of materials.

His Grace Bishop Jovan has held His lecture which was followed by opening of the exhibition. Priests of Serbian Orthodox Church in London, Fr. Goran Spaić and Fr. Zlatko Milovanović, have assisted His Grace with the opening.

Our hosts have promised their support when it comes to presenting this modest yet valuable exhibition at other temples of Anglican Church in London. This great honor gives us the reason to claim that we are first Serbian institution, from sector of culture, which was hosted by Anglican Church and in opportunity to present Serbian view on the great tragedy which affected Serbian people, especially children, in Independent State of Croatia from 1941 until 1945.

Museum has expanded its list of publications. The lastest publication is memories of Šid’s citizen, who was Austro-Hungarian soldier in Great War and witness of Croat-Ustasha crimes in Srem, during the existence of Independent State of Croatia.

Although the manuscript represents memories on survived wars its usefulness as a historical source lies in the fact that it is a reminder on great tragedies. That was the main reason behind our decision to publish it.

Manuscript was edited by Mrs. Slobodanka Danka Kojadinović and its presentation is scheduled for December 2018.

Within the commemoration days on the grave war crime perpetrated by German military forces in Kragujevac, on 21st of October 1941, Museum of Genocide Victims has presented its latest publication.

It is monograph ‘Victims of Second World War from Valjevo Municipality. Members of defeated formations, shot and disappeared’ by historian Mr. Milorad Belić. Presentation of the publication was held at Gymnasium of Valjevo and attended by one hundred citizens. In the name of the publisher, Dr. Veljko Đurić Mišina, Director of the Museum, has presented Museum’s activites; author has presented his book – idea behind the research project, methods of research and chalenges encountered when it comes to publishing his findings.

Museum of Genocide Victims is in process of creating a collection of paintings and artifacts which by their contents remind us of grave war crimes and killing sites. This collection should serve as a modest contribution to the memory on great woes and, at the same time, as a warning so we could prevent their repeating. Authors of the collection’s items are – all of them prominent Serbian artists – additional value to it.

Part of the collection – fifteen paintings which are exhibited as ‘Scars of grave crimes’ – hasalready toured 30 cities across Republic of Serbia and Republic of Srpska (from Belgrade, through Bijeljina to Banja Luka, from Trebinje to Višegrad).

Our exhibition in Višegrad was opportunity for us to visit, in the company of father Dragan Vukotić, Stari Brod – place of great suffering on Drina River during the March of 1942. Afterwards, we had a discussion with prominent representatives of Višegrad City on the need for memorialization of great tragedies of Serbs from this region during the XX century by building a memorial complex within Andrićgrad.

There are various ways in which our institution is remembering the suffering of the children in Independent State of Croatia. One of those is annual visits by the Association of detainees ‘Jasenovac’from Belgrade, which is comprised from survived inmates of various concentration camp complexes. As previous years, Museum of Genocide Victims had its representative within the Association’s delegation – it was Stefan Radojković, research associate of the Museum.
