Zoran Cvetković

The general trend of rural-urban migration of population and the resulting socio-economic consequences have influenced that many villages in Serbia remained with a small number, mostly elderly inhabitants. One of the most endangered municipalities, regarding population and negative growth of inhabitants, is the municipality of Crna Trava. This paper presents the results of the project "Forgotten Serbia - the last years of villages in the municipality of Crna Trava". The aim of the project was to explore, take and permanently archive images of private and public buildings, rural surroundings, etc. of villages of the municipality of Crna Trava. The second part of the project was to categorize and descript the digitalized objects, publish webpages about the villages and measure responses and reactions of web users.
