*Vukovar = Vukovar is Croatian city on the boarder to Serbia, in the part  of Croatia called East Slawonia. The battle for Vukovar was most bloody battle in the Croatian homeland war. It was 87 days long siege from august to november 1991. The siege was ended with the defeat of Croatian soldiers and with a big destroying of the town and many murders and persecutions of Croatian folk. In that battle died between 2.900 and 3.600 people.
