About CHRE

Center for Holocaust Research and Education (CHRE), founded in late 2014, the center is seeking to actively contribute to the factual interpretation of the Holocaust in Serbia as well as the ways its legacy still influences society in Serbia and the region. The center aims to serve as the platform for independent research of historical sources, encompassing the entire scope of factors influencing the victims’ communities, the German occupation, Serbian state and society, in all their defining aspects – economy, military, ideological, religious and cultural. We believe that our primary topics – the killing sites, forced labor, the pre-war de-legitimization of Jewish and Roma communities, collaborationist government participation in Holocaust, can only become effective educational content, in a way that is relevant for the formation and strengthening of a democratic, civil society, in an engaging, informed, and open environment.
