It is the anniversary of the brutal crime committed in Lovas. On this day 30 years ago, the Yugoslav People’s Army and Serbian paramilitary units entered the small town between Ilok and Vukovar.

In just one day, 22 locals were killed, and 90 were killed during the Homeland War.


Wreaths and lighted candles were laid in memory of the dead, killed and missing in the municipality of Lovas.


“We were forced to put a white cloth on our gate to show we were non-Serbs. It was so frightening,” said Marija Ostrun from Lovas.


“This is the day when atrocities begin here in Lovas, by killing, abductions, forced labor and those famous white ribbons that all non-Serbs wore on their sleeves to identify themselves,” said the president of the Lovas Municipal Council, Stjepan Milas.
