Serbian - Jewish Friendship

This brief article aims to remind people of the friendship that has lasted through the centuries, the friendship between Serbs and Jews. 


Perhaps you didn't know, but Serbia is one of the few countries in Europe where Jews were not persecuted by the natives (Serbs) throughout the countries history, only by invaders, who also persecuted the Serbs too.

Another country that has never persecuted Jews is Georgia, Jews were only persecuted and suffered in Georgia under the Tsarist government in the second half of the 19th century and the constant military conflicts and invasions by Timur, Ottoman Empire, and Muslim Persia.

Ottomans, Germans, Albanians, Croats and other Nazi or Muslim scum committed many atrocities against Serbs and Jews. 

Throughout history, Jews have fought alongside Serbs against many enemies, including Muslims and more recently during the second world war, Nazis.

Many have given testimony to the Serbian - Jewish heroism demonstrated throughout Serbian history, especially during the Second World War.

Heroic Jews also fought alongside Serbs during the war in Bosnia, 1992-1995, against Bosnian Muslim terrorists, and in 1999 against Albanian Nazi Muslims in the Serbian province of Kosovo.

This is link to a Serbian wartime song, which was made during the war in Bosnia. The song is about the Serbian hero commander, Mitar Maksimovic, who is in the middle of the photo. On the far right side of the photograph you can see his a Jewish member of his military brigade, with the star of David on his uniform.

  1. Israel did support the Serbs during the wars in 90's through ammunition/various different army brigades which were on the front lines. Greeks did the same, Russians did too.

    Whereas the West supported Croats.Iran, Saudi Arabia ect./Muslims supported the Bosnian Muslims in the exact the same way.

    Israel did support the Serbs knowing the idea of Zionism was established in present day Serbia,and knowing Serbs were the first people to push for the establishment of independent state of Israel.

    Lastly Jews know Serbs, and Gypsies were on the chopping block in WW2. German NAZI's were seeking to exterminate Jews and Croatian(Ustashi) with the help of Bosnian Muslims were seeking to exterminate the Serbs. Jasenovac for the Serbs is exactly the same as Dachau was for us.

    "To live in one Serbia and not to feel a burden of being a Jew is something that happened in no other place in pre-Hitler Europe."- Serbian Jews.

    1. I find the contrary offensive as a Serb, my own great grandfather ended up in a concentration camp for sheltering Jews, unfortunately he was not successful they were taken to Croatia along with him, simply ask a Jew how he was treated by Serbs face to face else is hearsay, i would treat a Jew as a brother and guest as would most, thats all i have to say...
