The heritage of multi-confessional Belgrade

The heritage of multiconfessional Belgrade

The project "Heritage of Multi-Confessional Belgrade" began in 2011 as a volunteer activity involving students and teachers from the Fourteenth Belgrade Gymnasium and the Sixth Belgrade Gymnasium. The project was designed so that, in addition to directly learning about the religious sites of the Jewish community, the Archdiocese of Belgrade, the Islamic community, and the Serbian and Russian Orthodox Churches, students also organized exhibitions in schools where they displayed historical documents and artistic works inspired by visits to these communities.

The students painted and photographed buildings, wrote about selected cultural and religious sites, and explained certain religious customs. The project involved 20-30 students. Through this project, students became aware of different ways of life and customs of their fellow citizens, directly experienced the application of human rights, and opposed latent discrimination against minority communities.
