The Institute of European Studies, in cooperation with the Archives of Vojvodina, published a new interesting edition. This is the first monograph on Johann Albrecht von Reiswitz, authored by Andreas Roth. It is a somewhat abbreviated edition of Mr. Roth’s voluminous book, who gave permission for us to translate for our market those parts related to his work and stay in Yugoslavia and occupied Serbia. The demanding job of translating and editing this work for our market was done by Dr. Zoran Janjetović, in coordination with Andreas Roth himself.
Von Reiswitz, a descendant of an old Prussian family, doctor of philosophy, archaeologist, art historian and administrator for the issue of historical and cultural artifacts, is a very interesting and important person for our area. Between the two wars, he stayed in various missions, and after the occupation he came as an officer in charge of cultural institutions, museums, archives, etc.
The writer, who devoted many years of research to this issue, brings a lot of materials, testimonies and gives a balanced and objective overview of Von Reiswitz’s activities in our region.
