With over 9,000 visitors, the exhibition attracted a lot of public attention with its narrative-educational programs, thematic guided tours, as well as personal narratives recorded in  audio and video formats.

The focus of the exhibition is the photo collection of the New News Agency of Yugoslavia, created to use news and images in the fight for the liberation of the people and the state and the social revolution.

Numerous photo-reportages recorded activities such as work on the reconstruction of roads, clearing of ruins, work of hospitals and children’s homes, life in villages, as well as many cultural events, the revival of sport and athletic life, and reports from the first football and basketball games in liberated Belgrade, motorcycle races and gymnastics “slets.

Besides the authors, Radovan Cukić and Milica Tomić, the collaborator on photo processing, Jovana Stojadinović, contributed to the realization of the exhibition. The architect of the installation was Milica Lopičić, while Mane Radmanović was in charge of the design.

The exhibition TANJUG Reports: The War is Over will be open in the Užice National Museum until May 30, 2024.
