Zagreb, Croatia expects to become the second self-sufficient Jewish community in 2002, when two valuable buildings in the city's center are due to be returned, according to Ivo Goldstein of the University of Zagreb.
The coalition, which includes the Social Democrats, under Ivica Racan, and Social Liberals, led by Drazen Budisa, have promised to build bridges to the West, which, according to historian Ivo Goldstein, is good news for Croatia's 2,000 Jews.
"The Jewish population wants to be part of an integration of states because we want to have more intensive contact with other communities," said Goldstein, a professor of Jewish history at the University of Zagreb.
Goldstein was particularly elated by the results - his father, Slavko Goldstein, was a founder of the Social Liberals and was the party's first leader, from 1989 to 1990.
