Belgrade - The exhibition "South Serbia in the Great 1915-1918War" will be opened at the Gallery of the Radio and Television of Serbia on March 31.  The exhibition is a joint project of the museums in Leskovac, Vranje, Nis, Pirot and Prokuplje, and is a specific homage to our ancestors in the wars that Serbia waged in the early 20th century.

“South Serbia in the Great 1916-1918 War" shows, in chronological order, the period starting from the withdrawal of the Serbian army and people in 1915/1916, through the establishment of the occupying military and civilian authorities, starvation and deportation of the Serbian population to the camps, the position of the Serbian Orthodox Church and educational institutions under occupation, to the outbreak of the Toplica uprising, its brutal stifling and ultimately the glorious return to the liberated  motherland.

The exhibition was prepared by Mira Ninosevic and Veroljub Trajkovic, who are curators, historians and senior advisers at the Leskovac museum.
