Memorial Day – Vukovar column

Day of the fall of Vukovar and the memorial of the victims of Vukovar is held every year on November 18. In fact, during the military occupation, which lasted from the end of August until the fall of Vukovar, on November 18th, 1991, when the Croatian soldiers stopped resisting, about 8000 people of Vukovar were abused in camps. About 1,700 civilians and more than 500 veterans were killed, while 800 people went missing. That is why there is a column marching from the hospital to the memorial cemetery every single year, to give eternal praise to war veterans and victims of the Homeland War.
