Coalition for RECOM: Finding the bodily remains of ‘the missing’ is a cornerstone in the development of a public culture of memory of the past

zarekom_ruke_postSome 23 years after the outbreak of the war in the former Yugoslavia, the bodies of 13,000 victims remain unaccounted for. On the occasion of the International Day of Missing Persons, the Coalition for RECOM calls on the governments of the post-Yugoslav countries in the region, national commissions and other competent bodies to confirm that the discovery of the bodily remains of involuntarily missing persons is a priority, and a key element of their regional cooperation. In so doing, they will lay a cornerstone in the development of a public culture of memory of their common past.
