The 27th Anniversary of the Murder of 33 Croat Civilians marked in Grabovica



This tragedy in Grabovica happened on the night of September 8, 1993, when members of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina murdered 33 Croatian civilians, and the youngest victim was Mladenka Zadro (4 years old), and the oldest was Marko Maric (87 years old).

On the occasion of the 24th anniversary, flowers were laid in front of the local memorial. The highest political representatives of the Croatian people in BiH laid wreaths as well, and the mass was served in the local graveyard.

Association of Croatian victims “Grabovica ’93” is still looking for 17 bodies of the victims and they appealed to the competent authorities to do more about this issue.

“We are witnessing the 27th anniversary of the suffering of Croatian civilians, and we are very sad. The reason for our grief and pain are the bodies of the victims that are still missing. We are still searching for 17 bodies, and we do not know if they were buried or thrown into Neretva River. Some evidence came out, but institutions that were supposed to do their job did not do it properly,” said Josip Dreznjak, the president of the association of Croat victims “Grabovica ’93”, and they appealed to the court and the prosecution to do more about this issue.
