An exhibition of photographs, drawings and paintings produced during 1914-15 when Serbia was at war. The photos tell a sombre story that starts with the farms and new recruits. We follow them to the Thessaloniki front, watch them die or retreat through frozen Albania to the ships that evacuated them to Cyprus. A selection of paintings then retrace the same journeys, the same places, the same battles but in colour and as landscape or large battle portraits. There are framed sketches made by artists who were also soldiers and alongside these bits and pieces of memorabilia. The title of the exhibition is taken from the diary of Milan Vakaljac, a serbian officer and volunteer. Until December 2014 at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Knez Mihailova 35. Daily 10-10pm, Thursdays 10-4pm
