Vukovar - remembrance, hope, life

On April 8 we started our trip to Vukovar, the heroic city which was almost completely destroyed during the Civil War in the 1990s. Knowing that approximately 90% of Vukovar was completely destroyed and seeing it now, 25 years later...it gives you hope that people can do it united in their diversities!

The first part of our trip had everything to do with the Civil War, so we visited the Memorial Centre, the graveyard where all the soldiers and the civil victims of Vukovar are buried as well as notorious Ovčara which left us speechless. The visit to the Vukovar hospital was extremely emotional...in such a way that some couldn't even enter the dark, damp place where the wounded people, as well as the medical staff, spent the 100 days of the occupation of the city. There's still a huge hole in the ceiling as a reminder of a bomb (one of many) that was thrown on the Vukovar hospital.

Full of sorrow and not able to grasp all the destruction that took place there, we headed to the brighter side of Vukovar. The brighter side of the city upon the Vuka river is represented by the people gathered within the European House Vukovar and Mladi udruženi u miruSlađana Trbulin, Biljana Gaća, Ranka Kojčinović, Martina Uglik, Borislav Kovačević and Lazar Lemajić - thank you for having us and an even bigger thank you for sharing your stories with us and showing us that there's hope in Vukovar...hope that all people can and need to live in peace, united in all their diversities. There's no point in being a Croat...or a Serb...The only thing one needs to be is - a decent human being! As Siniša Glavašević said in 1991: 'The city - it is you!'

The great closure of our Vukovar adventure was a boat ride on the Danube river. And what a ride that was! The water bus (yeah, it's not a boat but the water bus, the one and only of its kind in Croatia!) has a very sweet name - Bajadera! And we had a very sweet ride!

If you ever get a chance to visit Vukovar, please do! Show your respect to all the victims of the Civil War and find that there's hope in better tomorrow when all people of Vukovar will stand united in their diversities!

Because...it's OK to be different! It makes you special and unique! So, let's be different!
