Two Streets in Belgrade Named After Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Belgrade Municipality has decided to rename two streets in the Yugoslavia capital after Jews who performed valuable services for their country.

One of the streets was named after Chaim Davoco, the late Serbian Jewish writer, and the other after the brothers Amar, who were killed in action during the last war. A small hill in the vicinity of Belgrade has also been named after the Jewish brothers Amar.

Three streets in Belgrade already bear Jewish names: Moses Street, Israel Street and Jew Street.
