Summary/Abstract: Can a crime be justified, together with it’s practical institutionalpolitical results on the territory of the State of Bosnia-Herzegovina, without immoral and inhuman humiliation of victims and essence of human existence? That is one of questions, which motivated this article. Facing with such kind of question puts us in front of the wall or in one almost nonplus situation in which we recognize the dark side of human existence. What a victim could do and what must do in order not to stop evil from being don to her again and why, after all things that happened, victim doubts international institutions, Declarations on human rights and narrations on human achievements in our time. All that has global and local aspects. Does accepting of results of the crime (or silence related to crimes) mean that in the future one could expect similar physical extermination of one nation, that is genocide. Experiences of victims show that International community never reacts on time – international peace keepers and Minerva’s oak come when “everything is done” or “at the end of the day” when mass graves cover all soil. More democracy, justice and the Enlightenment could disavow unbearable dictatorship of nationalism and ethnic monarchies in parts of B&H.
