On Glođansko Brdo near Zvornik, Republic of Serbska, today marks 23 years of suffering of 126 soldiers of the Army of Republic of Srpska (VRS).
The crime took place on 6 November 1992, when the young men were killed by Islamists of the so-called Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
For Serbian speaking audience, the following documentary tells about horrors and torture the Serbs were subject to between 5 – 6 November 1992.
All the victims were members of the Zvornik and Sekovici Brigade of the VRS.
Representatives of the Army have unveiled (again) memorial plaque with the inscription: “Here lie 126 killed soldiers of the Army of the Republic of Serbska”. Every time, soon after installation, the plaque was smashed by unknown persons.
Between 109 and 250 Serbs have been killed or gone missing during the night 5 and 6 November 1992.
Glođansko Brdo, Kozjak, Trešnjica, Maskalica Potok and Siroki Put are just some of the places near the town of Zvornik in which earth and dust have covered dozens of savagely murdered Serbs, transforming the landscape into the town of mass graves.
The moment when the prisoners were taken to the highest point of Glodjansko Brdo and Kozjak and tied by barbed wire to the trees, the war began to resemble a brutally savage feast.
Only three of all the Serbs whose bodies were exhumed had the ‘good fortune’ to be killed by a bullet.
The bodies were unearthed often without the head and the extremities, with nails and iron bars in the skulls and breasts, and chains around wrists and knees, skulls smashed with blunt objects, cut off scrotum, burned body parts.
Most of those killed whose identity was established were buried in a common grave.
What makes this crime so monstrous is the fact that it was committed by Muslims from Kamenica, neighbours and as Serbs believed, friends.
But it is not only a characteristic of this war but all previous in this region, where only briefly dormant hatred was fastly awakened by war.
Skipping gates of their Orthodox Serb neighbours, Muslim hatred leaves the bloody footprints in every Orthodox home in this region.
