President of Optimisti 2004
One of the ways of working in the sense of dealing with the past and reconciliation of antagonistic ethnic groups was trough various sport activities, which we organized during the last 9 years, like now already traditional basketball tournament which is organized during the summer in which individuals from all religious and national group participate and in that way rebuild impaired interpersonal trust and sustain bigotry and hatred. Besides this, we participated in the initiative for the establishment of the Memorial Center at the spot of the Omarska concentration camp, which would, aside of dealing with the past, mean a confession of crimes, which would lead to a faster reconciliation.
Our missing citizens, unfortunately in our town more than 1000 are still registered as missing while the local authorities do not have the will to work on resolving this issue.
