Following the Skopje earthquake on 26 July 1963, a team of students from the Bradford Institute of Technology (later the University of Bradford) assisted in the reconstruction efforts. Books on Skopje and albums of photographs taken after the earthquake and in 1966 were presented to a group of Bradford University students in 1966 to commemorate this assistance.
