One of the archival fonds kept in the Archives of Vojvodina recently raised huge public attention in Serbia. Thе fonds is F.562 or personal fonds of Slavko Odić (1915–2006). Actually, it is one dossier of that fonds in particular that received close attention. It is the dossier with archival signature F.5220.127.116.11.2. While these numbers do not mean much to someone not affiliated with the archival science, it might be expected that those interested in the topic of war crimes in ISC will certainly very well remember the said signature.
Today on the 6th of February 2019, the Archives of Vojvodina were visited by Dr. Veljko Đurić, Director of the Museum of Genocide Victims in Belgrade, together with his professional assistant Bojan Arbutina.

An interview with the editors of the first issue of the Arheon journal (Boris Bulatović and Dragana Katić)
Interview conducted by: Ljiljana Bubnjević
Why is it called Arheon?
- The term Arheon comes from the old Greek word αρχαίος which meant ''old'', as seeing as how the very definition of an archive as an institution is associated with old documents, sources that help us look at the past in a correct way, we thought that such a title would be adequate.
