Strasbourg: Day of Serbian Culture and Art
The Serbian supplementary school presented an exhibition on famous Serbs and significant works from Serbian literature and art. Visitors were also able to see various national costumes and handicrafts, shaikače, bags, carpets, and watch a film about the Serbian heroine from the First World War, Milunka Savić which was translated into French, bringing the subject closer to the French audience. Artists also gave a concert of Serbian traditional songs entitled “Sounds of my homeland”.
This very important event for the Serbian community brought together many Serbs, citizens, and representatives of the municipalities of Belfort, Mulhouse and Nancy, as well as representatives of other French associations from Belfort, who enjoyed the program about the decades-long friendship between France and Serbia, which is evidenced today by many monuments and institutions.
The Consul General of the Republic of Serbia in Strasbourg, Anđelka Šimšić, addressed the audience, pointing out the importance of such gatherings and the preservation of Serbian culture, history, and tradition.
