Sorting out refugees at the Travnik gimnazium


Refugees pushed across the border just east of Travnik were assembled at the Gimnazium, the old high school. The Serbs were aggravating the situation in Central Bosnia, where the Croats and the Muslims were at each other's throats, by expelling large numbers of Muslims into the Croat controlled area. Then the British UNPROFOR troops had to figure out what to do with the refugees. The Serbs essentially manipulated the UN into helping them with their ethnic cleansing. This group of people had just come from the area around Doboj.

Very good comment from you!It's obvious that you knew the situation in central Bosnia,probably in the whole Bosnia and Herzegovina,Croatia,and the rest of ex federal state,ex you.Serbs knew how to manipulate with everything and with almost everyone.At least they success in their intentions and plans,Croats and Muslims started arm conflicts and finished the job for the Serbs.So Serbs didn't have so much well organized resistance any more,like in the begin of the war when Croats and Muslims fighting against Serbian aggression together.At least maybe some foreign intelligences
indirectly "helped"to Serbian plans.
