Perucac lake 19.09.2010

On 19.09.2010 a large group of volunteers arrived to Perucac lake to help in digging the ground in search of genocide victims from Visegrad. They worked in front of a restaurant –  a popular tourist site  – where a large number of bones were found. Most skeletons found in Perucac are incomplete because the bodies decomposed in the Drina River –  shattering remains of one body on a large area.

Many victims of the Visegrad Genocide will never be found  but during this action at least some families will find their loved ones.

Exhumations and the search for victims remains will continue for the next couple of days until the Perucac lake is refilled totally. Serbia has ignored calls from Bosnia to delay filling the lake.
