ZAGREB REMEMBERS THE RESISTANCE

Your contribution to the anti-fascist history of Zagreb

Documenta - Center for Dealing with the Past has been engaged with the presentation of key events of the 20th century since its foundation, looking for the best ways to bring the past closer to new generations. At the moment when the generations who survived the worst terror in the history of the city of Zagreb are slowly leaving, we are trying to create as much space as possible for the words and records of the witnesses of the time and protagonists of historical events.

The crowdfunding campaign "ZAGREB REMEMBERS THE RESISTANCE" will last from the Day of Victory and Liberation of Zagreb, May 8, until May 29. The aim of the campaign is to collect funds for the necessary research as part of the new edition of the online guide "Zagreb in war, resistance, artistic creation and memory. A guide to Zagreb during World War II." (The first edition of the guide is available here).


Motivated by the fact that the citizens of Zagreb, especially young people, know little about the locations associated with the Ustasha regime, its system of terror and the places of suffering and they are not familiar with the locations of the most important actions of the anti-fascist resistance, as well as the work of writers who worked and created in Zagreb at that time, the expanded and updated edition of the guide is an attempt to counter the distortion of history and the spread of misinformation regarding the events of World War II, but also a tool for young people and their teachers in creating teaching methods and materials.

Join us and support the campaign "ZAGREB REMEMBERS THE RESISTANCE" and help preserve the memory of the city's anti-fascist history!

Almost eight decades since the Second World War, we still live in the shadow of its unprocessed legacy. The expanded edition of the guide will be an incentive for everyone who wants to visit historical places and, while touring the city, rethink the places of resistance and suffering, the process of (not) forgetting the victims of the Holocaust and genocide against Serbs and Roma, as well as the terror whose victims were Croats and all other individuals who participated in the resistance in Zagreb. The traces of violence that the Nazis, fascists, Ustasha and other collaborators left in all the war and post-war generations have not disappeared yet. That is why we are again looking for ways to humanize the attitude towards all victims. Support us in the campaign "ZAGREB REMEMBERS THE RESISTANCE" and help preserve the memory of the city's anti-fascist history!


The crowdfunding campaign is carried out as part of the project "Public dialogue on the fate of the killed and missing: we remember – and you?", supported by the Active Citizens Fund.

The original poster of the initiative to restore the name of The square of the victims of fascism

When Square of the Victims of facsism was renamed in 1990 (the Croatian Nobles Square), individuals gathered in a civic initiative demanded the return of the former name. For the next 10 years, on the Day of Victory over Fascism and the Day of Europe, every May 9, they organized a protest. At first, about a hundred people gathered there, and over the years, several hundred people attended the protest. One of the longest civil actions in recent Croatian history bore fruit, and at the end of 2000 the name The square of the victims of fascism was restored. Therefore, in addition to a personalized thank-you note and your name in the extended guide, you will also receive an original poster with an invitation to protests on the occasion of May 9 during the years when the initiative was active.
