Ivan and I were met in Nis and driven to Pirot by Dragan Jankovic, a photo-journalist in Pirot who is also an amateur local historian who has become the repository of knowledge about the Jewish history of the town. Our aim in Pirot was to examine the ruined mikveh there – which Ivan says is the only remaining mikveh from the Ottoman period in the Balkans. We were joined, too, by a young architect from Belgrade, Jelica Jovanovic.


The mikveh is a small brick building that stands at the edge of what was once the Jewish compound, hemmed in behind new metal garages. The site of the synagogue is now occupied by a modern apartment house. The Jewish cemetery was destroyed in the late 1940s, so this is the only physical trace of a communal or ritual Jewish building – though one pre-war house stands on “Jewish Street” in the surrounding pre-war Jewish quarter, and Dragan showed us evidence of how a current photographic shop in town was once Jewish-owned.


People have been aware of the existence of the ruined mikveh, but recent actions by Jasna Ciric, Jelica and Dragan have brought it to more public attention and have initiated discussion at an official level in town about what can be done to preserve/restore it........


 It is in the shape of a Star of David sinking into the earth (very similar to a memorial in Usti nad Labem, in the Czech Republic), and a memorial plaque that had been affixed to a nearby building has been moved to form the centerpiece of the monument. The Israeli ambassador attended the dedication a few weeks ago in March. Also, a new plaque/information panel has been erected nearby.....

Pirot’s Jewish cemetery was destroyed soon after World War II — one gravestone is preserved at the local museum. We found it standing in an outdoor terrace area, along with other fragments of local stone carving — and a spent rocket fired during the NATO bombing in 1999….
