Statement of the SASA Executive Council related to the HAZU statement

Despite their experience, members of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SASA) have been appalled by a primitive tone of hatred in the statement of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts (HAZU) titled ’Appendices for the Protection of Croatian National Interests on the Occasion of Talks of the Republic of Croatia with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia related to their accession to the European Union’. Having no illusions that anyone of those in the international community, who relentlessly educated us on new civilization values, will speak out on this inflammatory political pamphlet, out of respect for the victim of the ’death camp’ we ourselves will not participate in a devalued reaction to those who unabashedly use a phrase ’Myth of Jasenovac’. Nevertheless, it is good and useful to be aware of what they think!
