A rich programme in honour of Yugoslav PoWs in Norway

 

As this year marks the 75th anniversary since the arrival of the first Yugoslav prisoners of war to German camps in Norway, Serbs in Norway are busy preparing a set of activities varying from history lessons to movie screenings and concert.

 

Thanks to the Association of Serbs and friends of Serbia in Bergen, a small memorial plaque dedicated to the Yugoslav prisoners of war will be placed in the courtyard of the Russian Orthodox Church in Bergen on June 17 in the presence of the mayor of Bergen, Ms Marte Mjøs Persen.

 

The guests will then have a chance to see a premiere of Bloody Cross, a documentary of the Serbian filmmaker Simo Brdar which sheds a light on the mystery of the bloody cross which today stands as a testimony of the Norwegian-Serbian friendship. This short documentary follows brothers Banjac, Marijan and Milos, and their suffering in Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War. They were two out of 4,260 Yugoslav (mainly Serbian) prisoners of war in German camps in Norway.

 

After the screening, Norwegian historians Michael Stokke and Knut Flovik Thoresen will hold short lectures and discuss Serbian-Norwegian friendship from a historic perspective. Mr Thoresen is already well known to Serbian audience for his book “Sent to Norway to die”.

 

A more relaxing part comes in with concert of musicians who have played a special role in strengthening Norway-Serbia friendship by collecting money for the plaque few years back.

 

The film starts on tour the next day. Namely, on June 18, Simo Brdar i Knut Thoresen are traveling to Kristiansand for the screening of Bloody Cross, while on June 19, the movie will be shown at the Institute of history where Thoresen works. Lillehammer is the last stop on this small Norwegian tour where the Association of Serbs of Kosovo and Metohija is planning projection and conversation.

“Bloody Cross” coming on big screens


 With his new documentary, Serbian filmmaker Simo Brdar sheds a light on the mystery of the bloody cross which today stands as a testimony of the Norwegian-Serbian friendship.



“Ever since I heard the story of Bloody Cross, I have been carrying myself a cross heavy as a rock in the Arctic Circle in Norway. The time was passing by and I had an unstoppable desire to film the story,” Brdar says.


He finally made it in late 2016. The short documentary follows brothers Banjac, Marijan and Milos, and their suffering in Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War. They were two out of 4,260 Yugoslav (mainly Serbian) prisoners of war in German camps in Norway.


At the time, the Nazis' demand for supplies for their troops and transport of raw material in the northern parts could not be met due to poor road conditions and network. The idea was to extend the roads and railway with the massive use of forced labour, mainly from Yugoslavia. While road over Korgfjellet (the “Korg-mountain”) was seen as a connecting tool, for the Yugoslav prisoners of war it represented a “Blood road”, as they called it due to harsh work and living conditions.


We learn for these and other sufferings from Aleksandar Banjac, Marjan’s grandson, who is the narrator in “Bloody Cross”. He reveals how Milos Banjac was killed while on forced labour in the Nazi camp in Norway and how his brother Marjan made a cross of his blood on a rock. “Bloody Cross” is not only a story about the tragic fate of brothers Banjac, but the Yugoslav prisoners of war in general.


Ever since, the Norwegians paint it red in order to preserve the memory of the camp inmate whose name they did not know until recently. Therefore, the movie also expresses gratefulness to Norwegians. “It (the movie) can thus revive the memory and modestly assist in fostering traditionally good Serbian-Norwegian relations,” Brdar added.


The movie, which already premiered in the village of Klekovci, Bosnia, in the Banjac winery owned by Aleksandar Banjac, has a tight schedule of screenings ahead. According to Brdar, it will be shown in Oslo in May, on June 17 in Bergen and then in other cities. The movie was supported by Narviksenteret and the Alliance of Serbian Associations in Norway.


The Norway screening coincide with events marking the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the first 900 out of 4,260 Yugoslav prisoners of war to German camps in Norway.
