The Centre for Civic Education (CCE) uses the opportunity to pay tribute to all the victims and detainees in the Mamula camp during World War II, among whom was the majority population from the Bay of Kotor. At the same time, we use the opportunity to invite future government officials to revise the contract with the investor who is now building a hotel and tourist facility on Mamula and to establish the Mamula Memorial Centre, as a permanent commemoration of the victims, but also a reminder to all future generations about the crime that happened there.
