This new theory-driven sociolinguistic monography by Ivana Vučina Simović (University of Kragujevac) and Jelena Filipović (University of Belgrade) studies language shift in the Belgrade Sephardic community on the basis of language data from seven consecutive generations. The Belgrade Sephardic community was exterminated in 1941 when Yugoslavia was invaded by Nazi Germany.
