Jewish heritage in Serbia

Jews (both the Sephardi and the Ashkenazi) have been present in the territory of contemporary Serbia for centuries. From the times when Serbia has been ruled by Hapsburg and Ottoman empires Jews played a significant role in the development of this country and Serbian nation in general. From the first decades of the 20th Century many impressive Jewish milestones and monuments still stand: the beautiful synagogues of Belgrade, Novi Sad and Subotica, Sephardic cemetery in Belgrade, Community building and Yeshiva in Novi Sad… Flourishing of Jewish communities has been cut-down by the WW2.
