Fund B92 is co-producer of documentaries on past („Vukovar – the Final Cut“, „Sajmište – History of a Camp“). Organization is part of the initiative to establish educational-memorial centre at the location of Staro Sajmište. It’s intended to collect and preserve memories on Jews and other victims of Nazi persecution in WWII, and to be research and educational centre where both history and causes to violence in the territory of former Yugoslavia, and history of fighting for more tolerant society would be studied. Currently, Fund B92 is implementing a series of educational projects connecting past and present for the school children in Serbia.
Rejection of the topic as a relevant one for development of the society is a challenge which we have been facing for last two decades. A significant part of the society deems our activities as betrayal and/or “mercenary activity”, regardless to the presented evidence, and refuses to condemn their compatriots who had committed crimes. The state apparatus has done nothing to change the culture format, to raise citizens’ awareness on the recent events, to educate young people and set up a system of values which will not allow repetition of mistakes from both far and recent past.
