Literature evening – “From his last farewell to his return” dedicated to Miloš Crnjanski

On the 2nd of May 2015 a literature evening organised by the Saint Sava Sunday School was held in the Hall of Bishop Nikolaj in London. At the start of the event, the audience listened to Crnjanski's poem 'Lament over Belgrade' first told in the Kolarac after his return to the fatherland in 1965.

Students from the sixth grade made three sketches with anecdotes about the life of the writer and poet. They were able to illustrate the originality, wit and creativeness of Crnjanski.

Audiences then heard a famous song known as 'Strazilovo' which the poet had read out on a broadcast by Radio Belgrade over half a century ago.

Professor Milo Lompar, the president of the Miloš Crnjanski foundation and a regular lecturer at the University of Belgrade talked about the life of Miloš Crnjanski in the context of history, politics and literature of the last century. Professor Lompar has also written several books about Miloš Crnjanski.

Church sunday school “Saint Sava”



More than 50 years ago the priests and parents at Saint Sava Church in London founded the Sunday School. Generations born in the UK grew up learning the Serbian language, history and Cyrillic alphabet, reading Serbian literature and adopting Orthodox catechism, customs, tradition, and folk dances of the Serbian people.

In May 1962, after receiving the Church Council’s permission and Very Rev. Miloje Nikolic’s blessing, Dragomir Nikolic and two other teachers established the school, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012.
