Today is the anniversary of Operation Storm (Operation Oluja in Serbo-Croatian), a Croatian offensive in 1995 in which Serbian civilians were killed and forced from their homes. It is another one of the events of the Bosnian War that used to be a comfortably fuzzy sketch in my mind… It feels so wrong that there are so many things that were completely life-altering to my friends here, that I used to know nothing about…
Below are links to two articles about Operation Oluja and its aftermath:
Ante Gotovina, commander of Croatian forces during Oluja has been indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for crimes against humanity committed during the campaign.
