Geocache Description:


 

Olga Sucic (1958 - April 6, 1992) was a Croat.

Suada Dilberovic (24 May 1968 - April 6, 1992) was a Bosniak medical student at the University of Sarajevo. She was born in Dubrovnik, Croatia to a Bosniak family. She came to Sarajevo to study medicine and was in her 6th year of study when the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina started in the early days of April 1992. On November 15, 2007 the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sarajevo posthumously awarded Suada a medical degree.

They are considered to be the first Bosnian (Muslim-Croatian) causalities of the Bosnian War.

On April 6, 1992, in response to events all over Bosnia and Herzegovina 100,000 people of all nationalities turned out for a peace rally in Sarajevo. Serb snipers in a Holiday Inn hotel under the control of the Serbian Democratic Party in the heart of Sarajevo opened fire on the crowd killing 6 people and wounding several more. An ethnic Bosniak woman Suada Dilberovic and Olga Sucic were in the first rows, protesting on the Vrbanja bridge at the time. The bridge on which Sucic and Dilberovic were killed was renamed in their honor. Six Serb snipers were arrested, but were exchanged when the Serbs threatened to kill the commandant of the Bosnian police academy who was captured the previous day, after the Serbs took over the academy and arrested him.
