Local Judiciary: Photo Exhibition on Suffering of Serbs in Bosnia and Herzegovina

BIRN BiH
An exhibition of documents on “Graves, Scaffolds and Detention Camps of Serbs in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Past Civil War”, organized by the Association of Families of Detainees, Killed Soldiers and Missing Civilians of Republika Srpska, RS, has been opened in Nevesinje.

 

Predrag Kovacevic, president of the association, said the exhibition was organized in cooperation with the Operational Team for Missing Persons with the RS Government and Ministry of Internal Affairs of RS.
 
“Our primary goal is to present the suffering of Serbs in the 1990s to the international, world and local public. Everything has been shown and documented here. Those things have been known for a long time. Our prosecutors’ offices are the main problem, as they do not do anything in regard to Serb victims,” Kovacevic said.
 
As he said, the crimes committed in the Herzegovina area were “more atrocious” than any other crimes committed in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
 
Kovacevic explained that the exhibition offers more than one hundred photographs, statistical data on about 1,600 graves for Serbs in Bosnia and Herzegovina from which 4,000 soldiers and civilians have been exhumed so far, and data about several hundred Serb scaffolds and 536 detention camps in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in which more than 50,000 Serbs were held at some stage.
 
A movie about the suffering of Serbs in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995 was also shown as part of the exhibition.
