On November 29, 2016, Mr. Elias Tauber, a Jewish community representative in BiH, president of the Institute for Research of Crimes against Humanity and author of the book, The Holocaust in Bosnia and Herzegovina, paid a visit to International BURCH University.
Rector Marjanović and Mr. Elias Tauber talked about multiculturalism in BiH, the development of human relations and multicultural education of students' population in BiH. In addition they touched on topics of minorities in BiH, with a focus on minority communities in Sarajevo Canton, and placed the special emphasis on the historical period of World War II on which the primary, secondary and university institutions do very little or no talking at all. Additionally successful cooperation was agreed between Burch University and the Institute, which Mr. Tauber represents.
"Wealth of BiH can primarely be seen in people, university, culture and religion. The Jewish community is an integral and essential part of the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, so it is always an honor and a pleasure to talk with representatives of the Jewish community in BiH, and to talk about its future", said Rector Marjanović.
