Cycling through the Blocks – on the Trail of Non-Aligned in New Belgrade

In 1961, at the height of the Cold War, when rivalry between the two blocs was at its peak and Berlin Wall was being erected, Belgrade became a symbol of a different vision of world politics. In September, it hosted the leaders of the Global South at the first official summit of the Non-Aligned Movement which remained the bedrock of Yugoslav foreign policy for the following three decades. During this cycling tour curated by the Museum of Yugoslavia, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about this important although somewhat forgotten moment in Yugoslav and world history. In particular they will learn who the Obelisk at Branko’s Bridge was dedicated to, what was the first event in the SIV building, who among the world leaders planted trees in the Friendship Park at Ušće. The cycling from SIV to the Sava Center, through the Park of Friendship and by the Energoprojekt building, will introduce visitors with key events and concepts of non-alignment policy, a foreign policy doctrine that was one of the pillars of the Yugoslav socialist system. The visitors will be led by Jovana Nedeljković, a historian and curator at the Museum of Yugoslavia in Belgrade.

Dates: June 19th, 17h-20h and June 20th 9h - 12h
Cost: 1200 RSD (10 euros) per person (this includes the bicycle).

The Jewish Historical Museum in Belgrade is a comprehensive and, in many ways, unique museum in Serbia. It is the only Jewish museum in the country, thematically specialized, and very complex in terms of contents. Apart from museum exhibits, the Jewish Historical Museum also has its own, relatively large, archives whose documentation and photo documentation are a testimony both of the Holocaust, during which many Jewish communities literally perished, and of the life and activities of Jewish communities from Serbia and the whole territory of former Yugoslavia during the 19th and, even more, the 20th century, including the present times.
