In spite of the fact that these crimes were reported to Croatian and other authorities decades ago, nothing has been done for these women, either. They lack medical assistance, compensation, and simple empathy. What’s worse, the Croatian “feminist” and “activist” organizations have ignored these women, fearing their funds will be cut off from the international organizations pushing “reconciliation” e.g. forgetting (but without justice). All the legitimate groups helping rape victims need to work together…without justice there’s little hope for reconciliation. South Africa recognized that; it’s time for others to do the same.
