International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearance, 30 August

The International Day of the Disappeared was established to draw attention to the fate of individuals detained, often in brutal conditions, in places that are unknown to their relatives and loved ones. As many as 40,000 people went missing during the war conflicts of the 1990s throughout the former Yugoslavia. 11,000 of them are still listed as missing. Croatia still has 1,869 unsolved cases of missing persons from the 1991-1995 war.

The photographs were taken at a mass grave near Petrinja with victims from the 1991-1995 war and during the exhumation of the remains of World War II victims in Gračani, Lonjščina.
