SUNDAY BRIDGES--that bridge again

A gloomy and grainy photo of the Bridge On Ada, with the tower from the Old Belgrade Fairgrounds (later turned into a concentration camp during WWII) in the foreground.

Weather's a bit clearer now, but last week it looked just like this at times.

See other bridges on Louis La Vache's SUNDAY BRIDGES.

Daily Haiku

Mists of times gone by
Blend with shadows of the new
Nothing ever changes

Maybe a little grainy, but (as The Chieftess wrote) an interesting shot - and you are first up for Sunday Bridges...

This could have been taken with one of those pin-hole cameras. I remember the bridge.

It's hard to imagine what was once a place of fun becoming a concentration camp. What has become of it now?

Hello, Shirley.

The Old Belgrade Fairgrounds (there are of course now new ones in another location) are still home to Serbian refugees from the wars of the nineties over the territory of the former Yugoslavia. These persons, having nowhere to go, settled there and are still there. Part of the Fairgrounds is also a sort of informal art colony, but that's a reasonably small part. Recent movements by locals and European entities (Jewish organizations and others) have tried to get this former concentration camp officially recognized, but not much has been done.
