On October 20th, 2017 Centropa’s new exhibition “The Lost Sephardic World of the Western Balkans” was opened at the Historijski muzej Bosne i Hercegovine.

The Museum will host the exhibition for two weeks before it will travel further through Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, and Macedonia.

The opening took place during Centropa’a Western Balkans Seminar in Sarajevo, which took place from October 20th–22th and was supported by Claims Conference (Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany) & International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) as well as the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Bosnien und Herzegowina.

For a quick glance into the opening of the new exhibition, you can watch this Kulturna Broadcasting of the Federalna TV from minute 9:15 to 12:50, with an interview with Jakob Finci and Centropa’s Director Edward Serotta.
