Commemorating Sarajevo’s Olympic Glory: Philatelic Exhibition Marks 40th Anniversary
After a successful four-year period, the Society of Philatelists and Numismatics of the Canton of Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) enthusiastically started the year with a new board and new events. To mark the 40th anniversary of the 1984 Winter Olympics, the Society of Philatelists and Numismatics of the Canton of Sarajevo, in cooperation with the City of Sarajevo and the Mayor Benjamina Karić, as well as the Bosnian Cultural Center, and Artis Center hosted a special exhibition showcasing stamps, first day covers, and commemorative coins celebrating the Games and their enduring legacy. The exhibition was part of a wider celebratory festivity organized by the city, featuring cultural and music events that resonated with the community. This broader program helped draw even more attention to the exhibition, fostering its standing and significance.
Yesterday, DeBra2024 exhibition organisers released their February Newsletter. The big news is that the AIJP has granted patronage to the exhibition and that Heinrich Köhler will be the exhibition’s major sponsor. It was also announced that in addition to over 800 exhibition frames, there will be more than 25 dealers and study groups at the premises.
The deadline for registration is 29 February.
