After an extensive search for approriate premises for the first public screening of the documentary Concentration Camp Zemun - Konzentrationlager Semlin, we opted for the Youth Centre Belgrade.
The Museum’s Director and the author of the film, Veljko Djurić Mišina, addressed the 200-strong audience, before Dr. Dragoljub Acković, Director of the Roma Culture Museum, Branka Džidić, Associate of the Jewish History Museum and Prof. Dr. Laslo Puškaš of the Medicine Faculty Belgrade all spoke about their connections with the Staro Sajmište concentration camp.
Discussions with the audience followed the projection of the movie. Of particular interest was the speech by historian Dr. Milan Koljanin, whose book A German Camp in Sajmišteserved as the foundation for the scenario of the documentary.
Concentration Camp Zemun - Konzentrationlager Semlinwill be televised on Channel 2 of the Radio Television of Serbia, as well as on Radio Television of Republika Srpska and the Serbian Television in Montenegro, after which it will become available on the Internet. The synchronisation to English is also under way.
