In the 1990s when Yugoslavia began to disintegrate and a brutal war broke out between Serbs and Bosnians, the international community’s focus was suddenly drawn to this diverse, intricate and historically complex corner of Europe. One phenomenon that this crisis produced was a renewed focus on the Holocaust. In some cases the Bosnian Muslims were presented as victims of a “new Holocaust,” and the Serbs as new perpetrators. In reaction “from the very beginning of the 1990s, the Serbs began a vivid memorial activity” for Holocaust victims, writes Jovan Culibrk, the author of a new study on historiography of the Holocaust in Yugoslavia.A renewed interest in the Holocaust took hold. This interest, especially in Serbia, faced an uphill battle against denial, distortions and years of official Communist versions. This new book is an attempt to understand how this history has been shaped and revealed.Historiography is the study of the history of history. As such it lends itself to an academic audience, rather than a popular one. But it is an important topic. How do we understand the past? What narrative are we told to digest since childhood about history, about right and wrong, and winners and losers? In some countries this is not an easy subject. Whether it is the history of Armenians in Turkey or Palestinians in Israel, there are sometimes official histories that don’t want to accept multiple narratives. This also happened in the Balkans.
