The human moral duty is to remember every crime against humanity. If we forget the past and do not remember what happened, it will repeat many times. My nation's history is the striking example, when the 1885-1923 events repeated in our day, this time by other neighboring country in 1988-1991.

Dear Zlatan your words are consolatory. I thank you for representing about Vukovar tragedy with this photo.

there are peoples and countries which are prone to violence and enslavement of other peoples and occupy their territories, but history shows that, with God's providence, each force is temporary, and that all who rob and kill, are depleted and then exterminated.... what is usurped, it is always damned!

in Croatia there is a proverb: he, who sows the wind, reaps the storm .....

dear Eduard, thank you for reciprocted understending....

kind regards and best wishes from Croatia,

Zlatan

A poignant memorial dear Zlato...no natural disaster compares with the repulsive atrocities man inflicts on one another.
