The opening of the monument dedicated to the victims executed in 1946 in Gacka Valley / On 30 December 2013 in Tupale hamlet near Sinac, a memorial monument was opened in memory of the fifteen victims of communist regime who were executed in that area in 1946. This is the first such memorial which Croatia erected on the site of the crimes which were committed after the World War II, after the adoption of the Act on the Research, Planning and Maintenance of Military Cemeteries, Cemeteries of  the Victims of World War II and the Postwar Period (OG 143/2012) in December 2012. Despite a delayed investigation of the crimes and marking of the sites where those crimes were committed, we support such activities because they present expression of piety toward the killed persons.
