Abstract

Jews in Serbia always represented a micro-community. However, the interesting fact is that even in post-war period, the decline of Jewish population in Serbia continued. The Jewish communities mostly inhabited Belgrade and Vojvodina region (especially Bačka region). The study is based on statistical and historical data about the events con­cerning the extermination of the Jewish nation and heritage in Backa region of AP Vojvodina. The research included the analysis of available documents and publications, and gives a short historical outlook of events in Bačka region before, during and after World War II. It presents detailed demographic analysis of Jewish population and war casualties in Bačka region. The study also gives an insight into the destruction of Jewish heritage and other relevant data on Jewish communities in Bačka, Vojvodina and Serbia today.
