Dear neighbors,

 

We are collecting material for the virtual collection of the Trešnjevka Neighborhood Museum again! Do you have old photographs of the street where you grew up, your school, or your workplace? Do you still keep or wear skirt suits or dresses produced by one of Trešnjevka textile factories? Did you sing in one of Trešnjevka choirs, or perhaps took swimming lessons at the Dom Sportova pool? Would you like your memories from Trešnjevka to be part of the virtual collection of the neighborhood history, which already contains more than 300 objects and stories shared by our and your neighbors? We invite you to bring what you would like to share and help us further build our neighborhood museum, which will give value to stories that are not part of the official history. [...]
