Remember The Fall of Vukovar
On 18 November 1991, the Yugoslav People’s Army and other Serb forces took control of the Croatian town of Vukovar. This marked the end of a three-month siege of the town, during which hundreds of citizens were killed and the town was largely destroyed.
Remember Ovčara Victims
On 20 November 1991, more than 200 Croat and other non-Serb persons were taken from the Vukovar city hospital. The ICTY found that 194 of these people were killed near Ovčara farm later the same day.
