Fatima Saracevic was born on 05.02.1931 in Visegrad. She was a saleswoman working in Visegrad. In mid-July 1992, she was abducted from the house of Hasan and Almasa Smajlovic in Mahmut Busatlije Street. She was hiding there along with 19 other woman and children. According to some sources, they were taken to the Rzav bridge in Visegrad and murdered there by members of Milan Lukic’s group and by members of Visegrad Police forces. It is suspected that this group of women was murdered to avenge the death of Dragan Tomic(high-ranking Serb police officer who was killed in action in a battle near Visegrad).  Neither her remains nor the remains of the other women and children has been found.
