Today and tomorrow will mark the 80th anniversary of the death of more than 6,000 Serbs from the Sarajevo-Romanija region in Stari Brod and Miloševići near Višegrad, who were monstrously killed by the Ustasha in 1942.

The commemoration will begin today with a ceremonial lecture at the Višegrad Cultural Center.

A memorial service for the murdered civilians will be served tomorrow in Stari Brod on the Drina. Wreaths will also be laid on the memorial and flowers will be thrown into the Drina.

Over 6,000 Serbs were monstrously killed during the Ustasha offensive in 1942 in the areas of Sarajevo, Sokolac, Olovo, Kladanj, Rogatica, Han Pijesak and Višegrad, who had attempted to cross the Drina river and seek salvation in Serbia.
