Exactly 30 years ago, Greater Serbian aggressors broke the resistance of forces defending Seleš not far from Antunovac, on the southern line of Osijek's defense. 

18 Croatian soldiers were killed or disappeared. The White Seleš Cross monument was erected in their honor, under which wreaths were laid and candles lit today.

“Even though thirty years have passed, emotions are still present, and it should especially be kept in mind what pain their families have lived with all of these years. Unfortunately the worst wound and greatest priority in our work is our missing people. We are investing great efforts in this, in order to find our missing people; there are still 1,853 of them,” said Croatian Veterans Minister Tomo Medved.
