Today we are off to the House of Flowers, the museum where the late Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito is buried. Every year on May 25 it gets transformed into the site of a mini-reunion of Yugonostaligics, as they mark the Youth Day.
This is also the only occasion when his widow, Jovanka Broz, can show up so please keep your fingers crossed for us to see her as she would be an invaluable interviewee for our topic and there is no other way to get in touch with her.
Months after Yugoslavs said farewell to their long-time leader, following his death in 1980, Mrs. Broz was evicted from their residence at Uzicka 15 St in the Dedinje suburb of Belgrade.
She was placed under house arrest and relocated to a shabby, unheated government-owned house in Belgrade with a leaky roof. Since then she has lived there on a meagre state pension, far from the public eye.
Will keep you posted whether we had any luck!
