Interest for this area is manifold and comes both from personal motivation and professional interest. My family history directed me a great deal towards this area of research, and decision to move from Belgrade to Sarajevo only intensified importance and inevitability of these topics in my life.

Activities

In March 2016 the second seminar of the French-German-Kosovar-Serbian exchange program “Justice without reconciliation ? War crimes and trials in Europe since 1945” took plaxce in France. This program is realized by the French-German Youth Office, the Youth Initiative for Human Rights Serbia, Humanitarian Law Centar Kosovo, Community Building Mitrovica, Altea France and the Max-Mannheimer-Studienzentrum Dachau.

The «Memorial to the Unknown Jewish Martyr» was opened in 1956 in Paris as the first Memorial in Europe related to the genocide of the Jews during the Second World War; it was renewed and enlarged in 2005, becoming the “Mémorial de la Shoah” which is today the largest research, information and awareness-raising center in Europe on the history of the genocide of the Jews. In 2012, the Memorial de la Shoah opened a new Memorial site in Drancy, in the North of Paris, at the location of the former detention camp from where most of the Jews of France were deported between 1942 and 1944 and which was run by the French police which collaborated with the German occupier.
