The Museum of Genocide Victims accepted the invitation to attend the 6th Global Anti Semitic Conference (March 19-21). The visit to Yad Vashem - the world’s most well-known holocaust remembrance centre had already been planned. The program of the visit to this institution was elaborated with Bishop Jovan of Slavonia, President of the Managing Board of the Museum of Genocide Victims (who is also President of the Commission for Jasenovac of the Holy Archbishopric of the Serbian Orthodox Church and President of the Commission for Staro Sajmište).
The visit to Yad Vashem was highly valuable for several reasons. Bishop Jovan and I had an opportunity to visit the most important organisational units (Library, Archive, Institute) and to discuss the possibility of future, mutually beneficial cooperation. The pinnacle of the visit, it has to be said, was the meeting with the Director of Department of International Relations. High-ranking members of the Serbian Embassy in Israel were also present at the meeting.
I made use of the free time I had at my disposal to visit the most famous sights of the Old City, such as Golgotha, Getsiman Garden, Garden Tomb, and other places. I would particularly like to highlight the encounters with a few inhabitants of Jerusalem, who in the past years contributed to the Museum of Genocide Victim’s Journal.
