Do not forget crimes! -

"The crime is not remembered in order to get back to the crime,
but the crime is remembered so it wouldn't be repeated!" - Proverb

The crimes that were done to us in the 20th and 21st centuries have left us so mutilated and downgraded to the unforeseeable consequences. The number of Serbs in the Balkans in the early 20th century was about 7 million. At the beginning of the 21st century, the number of Serbs is the same. How is it possible that in 100 years there is no significant natural population growth throughout a nation, the question that naturally arises. Meanwhile, in the last century of the second millennium Serbian nation was attacked four times: A Second Balkan war (1913), First world war (1914-1918), Second World war (1941-1945) and one Homeland War (1991-1999).

In these four wars Serbian nation has lost a population of millions. It lost the progress of society, people who were in their best age, the young women who could not have children, murdered infants who later could also leave offspring behind them. Amongst the killed were even elderly people who were unable to defend themselves against the bloodthirsty executioners who assaulted them.

In two wars, many Serbs have passed Golgotha ​​in the concentration camps, where they were brutally tortured in the most monstrous ways, women raped, even girls; men humiliated ... Dante's Inferno cannot be compared to the torture our compatriots received in these dungeons. Although, the monstrous crimes didn't occurre only in the camps, on the contrary, it is only a small part of the story about the crimes against Serbs. The entire Serbian families were killed, slaughtered or burned in their homes. Their only sin was their Serbian Orthodox religion and nationality. Numerous testimonies speak about it.
