Sarajevo’s most famous public secret: Confronting Caca, Kazani and crimes committed against Serbs in besieged Sarajevo, from war time until 2015.

The key issue the author asks is “to which extent are social groups and societies generally willing, not only to point out the crimes of others and to remember their victims, but also to face the crimes committed by their own party, and to remember the victims of those crimes?

The focus of the study is the question of public attitude towards crimes committed against Serbs in Sarajevo during the 1992-1995 war committed by the units of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This topic in public is related to two terms – Musan Topalovic Caco (Commander in the Army of BiH) and Kazani. How Caco and Kazani became symbols of crimes committed against Serbs in Sarajevo and how public discussion and public discussion of these issues developed during the war, but also during the two decades after the war?
