Board members in Venice

Photograph of Croatian Centre Board members in Venice before boarding a ship to travel to the 59th PEN International Congress in Hvar/Dubrovnik, 1993. This Congress, which took place on 19-24 April and whose title was Place and Destiny, held symbolic meaning both as a union during a time of rising tensions in Bosnia and Herzegovina and as a commemoration of a Congress that had taken place in Dubrovnik sixty years earlier, in 1933. From left to right are: Nikica Petrak; Slobodan Novak, then president of the Croatian Centre; Tonko Maroević; Giga Grača; Višnja Machiedo; and Vjera Čičin Šain.

Membres du Conseil à Venise

Photographie des membres du Conseil du Centre croate à Venise, prise avant l'embarquement du navire qui les emmènera au 59e Congrès de PEN International à Hvar/Dubrovnik, en 1993. Ce Congrès, qui a eu lieu les 19-24 avril et qui était intitulé Place and Destiny, symbolisait à la fois la solidarité au milieu d'une période qui voyait l'escalade des tensions politiques Bosnie-Herzégovine, et se voulait une commémoration d'un Congrès ayant eu lieu à Dubrovnik soixante ans plus tôt, en 1933. De gauche à droite: Nikica Petrak; Slobodan Novak, president du Centre croate; Tonko Maroević; Giga Grača; Višnja Machiedo; et Vjera Čičin Šain.

Miembros de la junta en Venecia

Fotografía de miembros de la junta del Centro Croata en Venecia antes de embarcar en un barco para trasladarse al 59o Congreso de PEN Internacional en Dubrovnik, 1993. El Congreso, que tuvo lugar del 19 al 24 de abril y fue titulado Place and Destiny, tuvo un significado doblemente simbólico. Por un lado, simbolizó unión durante un momento de tensiones crecientes en Bosnia y Herzegovina, y, por otro, conmemoró otro Congreso en Dubrovnik, celebrado sesenta años antes, en 1933. De izquierda a derecha: Nikica Petrak; Slobodan Novak, presidente del Centro Croata; Tonko Maroević; Giga Grača; Višnja Machiedo; y Vjera Čičin Šain.
