Students and professors of the Craft Technical School from Split have created a model of the Vukovar Water Tower ahead of tomorrow’s 30th anniversary of the fall of Vukovar and the most dramatic battle of the Homeland War.

The model, which was made with the help also of the Split-Dalmatia County, was placed today at the beginning of Vukovarska Street in Split. 

“This is an example of how students who learn practical things can be involved in this initiative that marks one of the most significant events in our history, and that is the sacrifice and suffering of Vukovar. We strive for all schools to be involved in such activities to honour all victims of the Homeland War, and especially the victims of Vukovar who are most responsible for the establishment of our independent and sovereign Croatia,” said the head of the Administrative Department for Education, Culture, Technical Culture in Sports Tomislav Đonlić.

“Fifteen students participated, and we made an electrical and wooden installation. It seems good to us and the idea is to do something every year to combine work and what should be celebrated in our country,” said the director of the Craft Technical School from Split Milivoj Kalebić.
