The program was prepared by the ”Association of Bosniak Youth of Istanbul” and many students from former Yugoslavia, representatives of Turkish authorities and other attended the program.

President of the association Vedad Halilović said that only if the society knows its history it can know something about itself.

”Aman without memories and knowledge about himself is a man without an aim, and in the same way the society without its memories and knowledge about itself is the society with an aim”, said Halilović.

The guests were greeted by general consul of BiH in Turkey Hrvoje Kanta who noted the unbreakable bond between BiH and Turkey.
