Women Heroes of the Homeland War


Sabina from Turanj, Zorka from Sydney, and Mira from Nijemci explain it was the urge to defend their homes that brought them to the frontline. Sabina and Mira worked in a field hospital, but due to a shortage of personnel, they did everything the other fighters did. Zorka came from Sydney as a professional hairdresser, so she also cut hair alongside working in the field hospital of the military brigade The Tigers. Mira was captured in Vukovar on 19th November 1991.
