War Veterans at the Commemoration to the Victims Killed in Uborak and Sutina: Those Responsible Must Be Brought to Face Justice
It was 29 years ago, as the Serb military and paramilitary forces were retreating from Mostar, that 114 Bosniak and Croat civilians were taken from their homes and killed at two locations near Mostar – Uborak and Sutina
According to the memories of the survivors, the 15 of them were outside that day, 10 June 1993, in the Podgradina neighbourhood when around 8:45 pm a shell interrupted their play. Five children were killed instantly, three died in hospital, and six were wounded.
War veterans from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia attended the commemoration for Serb civilians killed in Bradina near Konjic.
This time, we visited local communities in eastern Herzegovina and marked sites of detention, killing, abuse and suffering from the past war.
It is very unusual to find yourself “on the other side” of “glorious” Croatian (and not just Croatian) military victories, among those against whom the victories are being celebrated. It is clear who was defeated, but there is always the question of whether anyone actually won?
Activists from Bosnia and Herzegovina marked sites of suffering in the area of Bileća and Nevesinje. A total of eight locations related to the suffering of the non-Serb population during the 1992-1995 war were marked
