me was held in three languages: Serbian, Hungarian and Polish, followed by a panel discussion where the author presented his work, assisted by a delegation of the Polish Embassy led by Consul Pawel Sokolowski and Deputy Ambassador Andrzej Kindziuk, the Mayor of North Banat Okrug Nikola Lončar and the President of Community of Čoka Stana Đember and the high officials of the municipality. The panel noted the wealth of cultural diversity in Vojvodina as well as the need to preserve and support the development of local minority identities, such as Ostojić’s Lutheran Poles.
