WAR IN STOLAC
ery small number of Bosnians know about meeting between Boban and
Karadzic (Austria-Graz, May 1992). That meeting was set up for the final adjustments about
dividing Bosnia between Croatia and Serbia and killing the most of the people who resist
to that plan.
Two months later, in July 1992, an expedition of the Croatian Defense Union (HVO) set out from the town of Medjugorje (by the way, Medjugorje is small village protected by Virgin Mary). The force was allegedly accompanied by Dr. Vlado Palameta, an art historian from Stolac, one of the inner circles of Boban. Bet he was enjoying the show? The HVO attacked the ancient Serbian monastery of Zitomislici, killing the monks, and systematically annihilated this ancient and priceless sacral site which did not have any military importance.

TrueSerbs were very angry about that so they opened death camps for Muslims? Town was rounded up and terrorized for months. Every day they were arresting somebody for some reason and beating him asking some funny questions like:
TrueSerbs took away
from Stolac almost all vehicles, most of machines from factories, money stolen from
people, TVs, stereos and umbrellas (?) ... Finally, Stolac was very tired of the
When TrueCroats came back to town they decided to make a big party there? First of all
they started to convince Muslims that Muslims were very nice with TrueSerbs during the
aggression of Stolac? They arrested all Serbs remained in Stolac to stop them sending
military information to TrueSerbs? From time to time they made mistake and arrested some
Muslim. Finally, they decided to burn down all Serbs houses to make Serbs never come back
to town. From time to time they made mistake and burnt down some Muslim home. When Muslims
got very tired of TrueCroats and TrueSerbs they decided to make their own army. Big
TrueSerb Karadzic was very angry with TrueCroats so he sent a letter to Mate Boban:
On 23 August 1993, all Muslims men were arrested and taken to the concentration camps.
