Summary/Abstract: Starting from the fact that the number of victims of the Second World War and the postwar era in Croatia has never been firmly established, and that a list of victims has never been compiled, in 2002 a scholarly research project entitled ≪Victims of the Second World War, the Postwar era and the Homeland War≫ was launched. The aim of the project was to create as precise a list of the victims of the Second World War, the Postwar period, and the Homeland War as is possible on the basis of existing lists, archival sources, published works, and other documents. Work up to this point projects the creation of an electronic database coordinated with existing databases and the data expected from other sources, which enables research into 19 out of a total of 26 elements, and the conversion and transfer of data from the 1964 census in Croatia and Bosnia and Hercegovina of over 417 000 entries/victims as well as the database of the Ministry of Croatian Veterans of the Republic of Croatia. Up to May 2004, 86 archival fonds and collections had been fully examined as had 58 publications (books, articles), and information about 85 148 victims had been entered into the electronic database.
