ARCHITECTURE AND MEMORY: JEWISH HERITAGE IN BELGRADE

 

Sunday, 21.05.2017.

10.00-12.00                         

BINA WALK: ARCHITECTURE AND MEMORY: JEWISH HERITAGE IN BELGRADE

Guided by: Milica Rožman

→ The corner of Dušanova and Jevrejska street

 

The presence of Jews in Belgrade has been recorded since the sixteenth century. During the centuries the Jews in the region have participated in the creation of the visual culture of the city. The walk: “Architecture and Memory: Jewish Heritage in Belgrade” will present to the audience the basic topography of Jewish heritage. Walking along the Jevrejska (Jewish) Street, Solunska Street and Visokog Stevana Street, the participants will become acquainted with the area where Jews once lived, and with the specific nature of their lives in Dorćol. Although Jewish architectural heritage has not been preserved in this area, the urban core of the city will be discussed, followed by the socio-political changes that the Jewish community went through.

Attention will then focus on the grand work of architect Samuil Sumbula, firstly on the building of the Oneg Shabbat Society and Gemulat Hasidim in Jevrejska Street, and then on the Federation of Jewish Communities of Yugoslavia in King Peter’s Street. We continue the walk further to the Commodity Magazine, the most significant work by architect Viktor Azrijel. Afterwards, the audience will be familiarized with the works of architects Josif Najman and Leon Talvij, as well as numerous private buildings erected for the members of the Jewish community in Belgrade. By visiting aforementioned buildings, we will look at how the Jewish community created its own identity, as well as the visual culture of the city.

Milica Rožman graduated from the Department of Art History at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade in 2015 and she gained her Master degree from the same academic institution 2016.
