Promotion of diary entries by Veljko Vlahović from the First Conference of the Non-Aligned
In the year when we mark the 60th anniversary of the First Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement, the Museum of Yugoslavia will present unpublished diary entries by Veljko Vlahović, a national hero, journalist, politician, diplomat and author. The promotion of the book “Conference de Belgrade – Diary entries of Veljko Vlahović from the Belgrade Conference of 1961” is organized in cooperation with the Center for Democratic Transition from Montenegro, and will take place on Thursday, December 23, at 6 pm in the cinema hall of the Museum of Yugoslavia.
The following historians will talk about the book: Božena Miljić, senior researcher at the Historical Institute of Montenegro, Hrvoje Klasić, book reviewer, professor at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb and Jovana Nedeljković, curator at the Museum of Yugoslavia. The discussion will be moderated by Ana Panić, curator at the Museum of Yugoslavia.
The publication came about thanks to the discovery of Božena Miljić, who, while preparing an exhibition from the legacy of Veljko Vlahović in 2018, found a folder with typed text of diary notes, which she prepared for publishing three years later.
Prof. Hrvoje Klasić from the University of Zagreb, the reviewer of the publication says in the review: “Although he deals with the events of sixty years ago in his manuscript, Vlahović’s warnings, as well as the solutions, are still thought-provoking today.”
