95th year since the foundation of the Society

E-mail Ispis PDF


Founded in 1929., the Society was active until 1941. when stopped working due to war events. After the war, due to character of the socio-political system, the changes in the social structure of Vrebac and the living conditions in the village, the Society was not renewed. In the post-war, the historical memory of the Society was lost, so that the only trace of the Society's existence remained in the Land Registers, in which the Society was listed as the owner of the Community Center in Vrebac.

That fact prompted a group of enthusiasts to investigate the background of the inscription. So at the beginning of 2017. archival documentation found in Archive of Yougoslavia in Belgrade related to the Society: work reports, financial documentaion – minutes from sessions and especially the RULES OF THE SERBIAN NATIONAL READING CENTER IN VREBAC dated June 8, 1933..

This created the conditions for the renewal of the Society's work snd the Society was renewed on March 18, 2017. in Vrebac, Vrebac 101.

The 95th anniversary of the founding of the Society is a significant and valuable anniversary, the significance of which we may not be able to fully appreciate today. From humbler beginnings, misunderstanding and even avoidance and inactivity, the Society today has more than 90 members with a tendency to grow, accepted and the village and known in wider areas and on a larger scale, often welcomed with suprise, giving rise to optimism that the village live on.

Spreading the culture of tolerance and understanding in interpersonal and inter-ethnic realtions, the Society welcomes all those who share these values, regardless of nacional and religious affiliation, into the membership.

It is up to us to continue to develop the Sociaty to enrich it with members and activities and to pass it on to future generations with pride.


The new life of the society started in 2017. it should go on and on…….

The Renewed "Serbian National Reading Room and Library in Vrebac" Society

E-mail Ispis PDF

The year 1929 is remembered as one of the coldest, as well as for the founding of the "Serbian National Reading Room and Library in Vrebac" society. There was a need for the cultural and spiritual betterment of our citizens, so the founders were (among of them): Marko Počuča and Smilja Narančić, teachers, Đuro Bogdanović and Mile Ugarak, plowmen, Rev. Đuro Vitas, Todor Bogdanović, road maintainer and Vlajko Narančić, trader. They wrote the rules of the Society, and it was registered at the proper authorities.

Clause number 2 defines the assignment of the Society as "to promote the culture of the village by reading educational and funny newspapers and books, to educated all members in the national way, to organize promotions, parties, events and games, and to organize courses about health and education and everything that can improve the life of the village.

Planned program activities were executed, an interesting one among them was the purchase of a radio with batteries, which was listened to by many citizens of Vrebac, especially with the bad news from WWII. They realized that they could be engulfed with the war. Unfortunately, this is precisely what happened. The Ustasha came to the village on May 6th 1941 and took the Library as their seat. Terror began and the Society ceased with its activities. After WWII, the rebuilding of the society was impossible, as many citizens had moved out of Vrebac, and the rest of them were in exile after 1995.

A group of citizens of Vrebac decided to rebuild the Society in the honour of our ancestors and tradition. The new assembly of the Society was held on March 18th 2017 in Vrebac. The founders are: Jovan Bobić, Bogdan Mandarić, Jovo Ćurčić, Mirjana Ćurin nee Grubić, Dragica Plećaš nee Mandarić, Tanasije Mandarić, Željko Narančić,  Rev. Dragan Mihajlović and Nikola Cetina.

Jovan Bobić, Tanasije Mandarić, Nikola Cetina, Mirjana Ćurin and Željko Narančić are selected for the steering committee.

Dragica Plećaš, Bogdan Mandarić and Jovo Ćurčić are selected for the supervising committee.

A decision about the initialing proceedings of registering the Society was made. After procedure, the Office of Public Administration of the Lika-Senj county made a decision of registering the "Serbian National Reading Room and Library in Vrebac" society at Vrebac 30.

After this document was adopted, the Society can continue with its activities after 76 years. There are many plans for future work and activities, so we will need your help and  the help of all the citizens of Vrebac all over the world. We can save our Vrebac from decay and oblivion.

Nikola Cetina
