Over the past two decades, much has been written, and numerous books have been published about the history of Novi Bečej. The written word has taken us back to the past, attempting to describe and present our town, capturing the spirit of that time.

There have been writings about the Tisa River, culture, notable individuals, markets, and generally everything related to our place. Alongside some of these texts, one could find a few photographs, postcards, or documents from the described period.

While reading these books, I had a sense that there might be room for a publication focusing specifically on these elements that have been explored in the texts so far. That's when I began to review and systematize my small archive about Novi Bečej, deciding to make the more valuable part of the archive accessible to all interested fellow citizens.

Readers of this publication will have the opportunity to gain a more complete picture of our town over the past 120 years through the provided documents, photographs, postcards, and more.
