Nevino ubijenim
Kozarčanima
1992 - 1995

Ovdje se ne živi
samo da bi se
živjelo...
Ovdje se ne živi
samo da bi se
umiralo...
Ovdje se i umire
da bi se živjelo
...
Mak Dizdar

To the innocent
killed citizens
of Kozarac
1992 - 1995

One does not
live here
in order to live...
One does not
live here
in order to die...
One also
dies here
in order to live
...
Mak Dizdar

Time should not erase the memory of all those faces dear to us
that the evil nineties cruelly took away.
We will remember them and remember our 94 fellow Kozara people who were killed in a cruel and cowardly way here in 1944.
Our dear ones,
may you all rest in peace.
