♦ What is Visegrad Genocide?
The Višegrad genocide was an act of ethnic cleansing and mass murder of Bosniak civilians that occurred in the town of Višegrad in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina, committed by Bosnian Serb Army and Police forces at the start of the Bosnian War during the spring of 1992. Over a period of four months, Bosniaks were murdered, tortured, raped and publicly humiliated on a daily basis in Visegrad’s streets, in the victim homes and in concentration camps.
♦ VGM Aim:
Our aim is to document crimes against humanity commited by Bosnian Serb forces against the Bosniak(Bosnian Muslim) population in Visegrad. The Bosniak population of Visegrad at the beginning of the aggression on B&H was subjected to murder, rape, detention, deportation and public humiliation by members of the Yugoslav Peoples Army, the Bosnian Serb Army known as the Army of Republic of Srpska, Bosnian Serb Police, local Serb neighbors, Serbian and local paramilitaries, ”weekend fighters” from Serbia and last but not least by foreign Orthodox Christian volunteers.
The result of these actions are that the total Bosniak population in Visegrad was ethnically cleansed or to put it in other words, GENOCIDE was committed against the Bosniak population in Visegrad.
