URGENT CALL TO ACTION!

URGENT CALL TO ACTION!

The Institute for Research of Genocide-Canada (IGC) calls upon all members of the public to join in the new campaign to pressure ArcelorMittal to open up Omarska Concentration Camp memorial center to all 365 days a year. ArcelorMittal is the current owner of Omarska and when they purchased it they promised to maintain the sight and create a memorial for the victims and survivors of the Omarska Concentration Camp. This promise was made in 2005 but seven years later however, ArcelorMittal has postponed their plans to make this memorial and more recently has refused everyone entrance to Omarska.

In 1992 Omarska was a place of sadism, death, torture, inhumane and degrading treatment, rape, enslavement and other unimaginable things where in the span of 3 and a half months over 7,000 non-Serbs were detained and out of that number it is estimated that between 4,000 to 5,000 individuals perished. The United Nations declared it a death camp and after reports comparing Omarska to Auschwitz came out, the international community forced it to close down on August 6th , 1992, three months after opening.

Twenty years on, ArcelorMittal is attempting to hide the truth of the gruesome events that Bosniaks and Croats suffered by refusing the public entrance to the former camp. By hiding the truth they are supporting the denial of the events that occurred in Omarska which caters to the views of the current Mayor of Prijedor, Marko Pavlovic. With the ongoing denial of Omarska being a concentration/death camp in that region, ArcelorMittal is also supporting the war criminals that tortured, killed, raped and massacred innocent people.

Concentration camp memorial centers are significant for history, memory and education so future generations can learn from the past and there is no better way to learn than to visit places such as these. Thus we call on the public to get informed, get involved and pressure ArcerolMittal to start supporting the concentration camp survivors instead of the war criminals.

HITNI POZIV NA AKCIJU!

Institut za istraživanje genocida, Kanada (IGK) poziva sve prijatelje istine o agresiji na Bosnu i Hercegovinu i pravde za žrtve tih zločina da se pridruže našoj kampanji za pritisak na ArcelorMittal, da otvori Omarska koncetracioni logor spomen centar 365 dana u godini. ArcelorMittal je trenutni vlasnik Spomen centra Omarska. Kada je Spomen centar Omarska kupljena obećano je da će se održavati logor i stvoriti spomenik žrtvama logora Omarska. Ovo obećanje je dato još 2005. Sedam godina kasnije, ArcelorMittal je odgodio svoje planove. Nedavno ArcelorMittal je odbio  ulaz u Spomen centar Omarska.

U 1992 oj godini, koncentracioni logor smrti Omarska je bila mjesto sadizma, smrti, mučenja, nehumanog i ponižavajućeg postupanja, silovanja, porobljavanje i drugih, normalnom ljudskom biću nezamislivih zločina. U razmaku od 3 i po mjeseca više od 7.000 nesrba su bili zatočenici toga logora smrti. Procjenjuje se da je između 4.000 do 5.000 nedužnih ljudi stradalo. OUN je proglasila  Omarsku koncentracionim logorom  smrti. Nakon izvještaja da je Omarska ista poput Auschwitz-a ,međunarodna zajednica je forsirala zatvaranje logora. Koncentracioni logor smrti je zatvoren 6. Augusta 1992 godine, tri mjeseca nakon otvaranja.

Dvadeset godina kasnije, ArcelorMittal pokušava sakriti istinu o zločinima u logoru Omarska odbijanjem javnog ulaza u bivši logor. Skrivajući istinu o zločinima ArcelorMittal podržava poricanje zločina koji su se dogodili u Omarskoj i šteti pravdi za žrtve tih zločina. Podržavajući trenutnog gradonačelnika Prijedora, Marka Pavlovića, negatora genocida u Prijedoru i Bosni i Hercegovini. Negiranjem zločina u koncentracionom logoru smerti Omarska, ArcelorMittal podržava zločin genocida, ratne zločine, zločine silovanje, ubijanja, protjerivanja i mućenja.

Memorijalni centri su značajni za historiju i prevenciju genocida. Memorijalni centri su najbolja mjesta za sjećanje i obrazovanje budućih generacija, koje iz njih mogu mnogo naučiti iz prošlosti. Ne postoji bolji način za istraživanje genocida nego kroz posjetu mjesta kao što Omarska. Pozivamo vas da se uključite u akciju da ArcerolMittal počne podržavati žrtve koncentracionih logora, umjesto ratnih zločinaca. Molimo vas da posjetite sljedeće linkove:
