Republic of Srpska President Visits Jasenovac Memorial Area


The President of the Republic of Srpska, Željka Cvijanović, visited today the Jasenovac Memorial Area, where she laid a wreath for the victims of the Ustashi concentration camp and said that she is there to pay tribute to those brutally murdered at a time of darkness.

“I am here to pay tribute to the innocent victims, brutally killed at a time when darkness reigned.  We long-waited for some new generations to care for the past, but also to look to the future,” said President Cvijanović.

The President of the Republic stated that this day, which is particularly hard due to tragic human destinies, ended with a visit to this place of suffering.

President Cvijanović pointed out that Jasenovac is one of the strategic places, towards which the Republic of Srpska’s attention will be focused, just as is the attention of Serbia.
