The first visible result of the strategic project, implemented by the Archives of Serbia, relating to researching archival material in the Ottoman archives in Istanbul will be open to the public on June 10th.
On Monday, at noon, the exhibition “Serbs and Serbia in Ottoman Documents from the 15th to the 19th century” will be opened. This is the first in a series of exhibitions featuring documents from the Ottoman archives important for the history of the Serbian people under Turkish rule.
The exhibition showcases a selection from the corps of several tens of thousands of documents researched, digitized and stored in the Archives of Serbia in the past years.
In addition to documents from the Ottoman Archives, visitors will also be able to see documents in the Ottoman language from the Archives of Serbia which were presented to the Presidents of Serbia and Turkey, Aleksandar Vucic and Recep Tayyip Erdogan respectively, during the last visit of the Turkish president to Serbia.
The implementation of this project was based on the Protocol on Cooperation signed by the Archives of Serbia and the Representation of State Archives of the Government of Turkey in 2015.
As announced, the exhibition will be opened by Vladan Vukosavljevic, Minister of Culture. Tanju Bilgic, Ambassador of Turkey to Serbia, Ugur Unal, Head of the Turkish State Archives, and Miroslav Perisic, Director of the Archives of Serbia, will speak at the opening.
