Saturday, 10 February 2018
BELGRADE, February 9 /SRNA/ - The publishing company Vukotic Media has published a biography of General Ratko Mladic titled “Komandant” /Commander/ by Bojan Dimitrijevic, which sheds light on Mladic’s military career and offers a fresh view of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“There aren’t many political assessments, no conclusions. It’s a military biography yet I must say that the biography reveals the setting and the whole atmosphere in which all those things happened unfortunately quite tragically, but in the end, like the General says himself in his main messages, as a result of that struggle we now have Republika Srpska,” director of Vukotic Media Manojlo Manja Vukotic told Srna.

Monday, 05 February 2018
BELGRADE, February 4 /SRNA/ - Israeli historian Gideon Greif warns that the present exhibition at the Memorial Complex in Jasenovac must urgently be replaced because it gives a wrong and distorted picture of the atrocities Ustashas committed in the concentration camp so you can’t tell the criminal from the victim.

"The visitors are misled about the number of victims, the manners of torture, humiliation and brutal murders of camp prisoners,” said Greif.

He told the Belgrade Vecernje Novosti daily that world historiography has the duty to maintain the memory of the genocide that Ustashas committed against the Serbs, Jews, Roma, Sinti and anti-fascists at Jasenovac.
