The exhibition "Yugoslav Teachers' Association" was opened on the occasion of the 51st Anniversary of the Archives of Yugoslavia. The documents presented to the audience and the visitors give the full richness and diversities of the activities accomplished by this professional association which primary aims were legal and material support to the teachers, educational, cultural and ethical issues to deal with. 

The author of the exhibition, Miss Sandra Popović,  selected 212 original documents and arranged them in 19 thematic units. They describe the development of the Yugoslav Teachers' Association which played very important role in the educational and social life of the prewar Yugoslavia, from the time of the Inaugural Congress held in Belgrade 1920 until the outburst of the Second World War when the Association seized to exist. Through the documents exhibited a visitor becomes aquainted with its organization and activities in the fields of culture, education, humanitarian work, publishing, international cooperation with the similar associations in the State and Abroad. Special attention attracts the attitudes that teachers had towards the social and material problems they faced in their everyday life and work; the possibilities of receiving advanced training, professional security, specific position of the women teachers and many other important issues.
