Tragic comic image from Visegrad.Association of raped women and victim families gather in Visegrad to mark the genocide commited there. The billboard in the rear reads: "Bosnia and Herzegovina is now safe and secure. It is time to turn towards the future."


Visegrad during the 92-95 aggression was marked by ethnic cleansing of it’s Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) population. The Bosniaks in Visegrad  made up  62.8% of the entire population of the city before the genocide. Today a few hundred Bosniaks, mainly old people returned and live in suburban areas.

These places include: the elementary school “Hasan Veletovac”, the secondary school, the Yugoslav People’s Army base “Uzamnica”  etc.

  1. Rape is the most heinous act not only for its victims but also for national,spritual,moral dignity. One who does,or promote even think about such events are real monster of the world. Women is mother,sister & beloved. She must be respected because no culture can exist without them. History is evident where there is no respect for women such society,nation,&culture has got soon ruined.

  2. Honour to the brave women who won’t let unpunished crimes be forgotten.
