DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

Vukovar marks the 30th anniversary of the tragedy

Today marks the 30th anniversary of the Vukovar tragedy, on the day when members of the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) and Serb paramilitary formations entered the destroyed city after a three-month siege.

Since last year, this day has been marked as the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Homeland War and the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Vukovar and Skabrnja, and is a non-working day.

 

The central event is the traditional Column of Remembrance through the streets of Vukovar to the Memorial Cemetery of Homeland War Victims, 5.5 kilometers away, where state and other delegations lay wreaths.

 

Defense Minister Tomo Medved from the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) called on citizens to stay at home for epidemiological reasons and to pay tribute to the victims by lighting candles, and those who decide to come to adhere to epidemiological measures.

 

Despite the appeal of the authorities, the former HDZ member and Vukovar Mayor Ivan Penava from the far-right Homeland Movement, invited the citizens of Croatia to come to Vukovar on November 18 and join the Column of Remembrance.

 

From August 25 to November 18, 1991, Vukovar was under siege by the JNA and Serb paramilitary formations.

 

According to the Vukovar hospital, 1,624 people were killed and more than 2,500 wounded during the three-month siege. About 5,000 people were taken to camps in Serbia, and about 22,000 Croats and other non-Serbs were expelled from the city. Another 300 people are still missing.

 

During the siege, about 7,000 shells fell on Vukovar daily, as a result of which almost 90 percent of the buildings in the city were destroyed.

 

Remembrance Day is also being marked in Skabrnja near Zadar, where members of the JNA under the command of Ratko Mladic and Serbian paramilitary formations killed 43 locals and 15 members of the armed forces on November 18, 1991.

 

The killings continued in the following days.
