COMMEMORATIONS

Commemorative gathering dedicated to Jewish victims in Subotica
22.6.2021.

In memory of the people who tragically lost their lives on 16 June 1944, wreaths were laid at the Jewish Victims’ Square in Subotica (former Jewish ghetto), and in the yard of the Subotica Synagogue. On this occasion Mr. Robert Sabadoš, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Serbia, sent an important message for the future – never to repeat the past. 

Lately we are witnessing an extreme rise of the anti-Semitic statements, which disturbed general public. Things which appear on social media leave a strong mark among people and affect their psyche. Because of this, we must show that what happened could happen again if we are not cautious enough. Theories linking Jews with Coronavirus, the appearance of posters with Nazi symbols and shameful inscriptions – these are all reasons which raise great concern in the Jewish community of Serbia. That is why we asked for an immediate reaction from the State authorities, declared Mr. Sabadoš.

The mayor of the city of Subotica, Mr. Stevan Bakić, reminded all present at the commemoration that the Jewish community gave an immeasurable contribution to the development of the city of Subotica during the second half of the XVIII century.
