BiH Statehood Day marked in Australia

November 26, 2018 3:00 PM

Citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina who live in Australia marked the Statehood Day of BiH, gathering in the building of the Embassy of BiH in Canberra. What is interesting is that they themselves built the embassy building.

The organizer of the reception was the Association of BH organizations in Australia that held its Annual Assembly on the same day as well.

As part of the reception, Ambassador of BiH to Australia Mirza Hajric, exchanged congratulations on BiH Statehood Day with religious officials from BiH serving in Australia: Ilija Dragisavljevic, Miroslav Jelic, Jasmin Berkic and Ensar Cutahija.

The Statehood Day of BiH is one of those holidays that at the same time shed light on the idea of the country projected in ZAVNOBIH and what we see today. The Statehood Day is a reminder of the eternal struggle between the ideal and reality, desire and possibility.

When, after a two-day session on the 25th and 26th of November 1943 was adopted the Resolution of the National Anti-Fascist Council of National Liberation of BiH (ZAVNOBiH), 247 delegates from all over the then occupied country nurtured the hope that BiH will survive until today. However, what they did not hope for is that their ideas about the country will be challenged half a century later and that the spirits of discord will not calm even in the first years of the 21st century.

However, the spirit of anti-fascism, as romantic as it sounds, created a document at a time when optimism was an expensive product, and which was charged by domestic traitors and followers of Nazism.
