Summary/Abstract: I went to Jasenovac this spring. I talked to my fellow travellers, mostly older than 80, victims or family members of victims. Their main question, almost seven decades since the suffering, is: why? “Why have my relatives, all tall and strong men, been killed?” “Why grandchildren of my relative, who was killed in Jasenovac, never came to Jasenovac?”
