The Association for Social Research and Communications (UDIK) informs the public that on Friday, November 20, 2015, will organize a visit to Vukovar on the occasion of the 24th anniversary of the crimes committed in this town. On this occasion, UDIK’s activists will attend the commemoration in memory of the victims of the crimes committed in Vukovar. Commemoration and wreath laying ceremony will be held at Ovcara at 10:30 am.
We remind that on November 18, 1991 ended three-month siege and bombing of this town by the Yugoslav National Army and Serbian paramilitary forces, during which has spent in the bombing of Vukovar more than 6.5 million grenades. During the three-month siege, in Vukovar were killed more than three thousand civilians and veterans, among them 86 children. After the fall of Vukovar hundreds of captured soldiers and civilians passed torture during capture and transport, but also in the camps and prisons in Serbia (in Stajicevo, Sremska Mitrovica, Aleksinac and Nis).
With this visit, UDIK wants to remind the public of the victims in Vukovar and the surrounding area, and with the wreath-laying to pay homage to all the innocent civilians killed in this town. On this occasion, UDIK wants to leave a message that we all have a responsibility to remember these victims and to remember what happened in Vukovar in 1991. This is an opportunity to remind the problems that victims still have and to remind the discrimination in the justice system of the Republic of Croatia.
