Restoring Family Links in Croatia

 
How the Family Links Network of the Red Cross / Red Crescent Movement can help you look for a family member, restore contact with a family member or be reunited with a family member
We help you to look for family members in Croatia

The Croatian Red Cross helps people look for family members in Croatia.

We try to help you when you have lost contact due to:

  • armed conflict or other situations of violence;
  • natural or man-made disasters;
  • migration;

or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.

The Croatian Red Cross accepts tracing requests and can try to find information on people missing in connection with the conflicts in the Republic of Croatia (1991-1995) and in Bosnia and Herzegovina (30 April 1991 - 14 February 1996) and the crisis in Kosovo (1998- 2000).

The Croatian Red Cross is centralizing data of people missing in connection with the armed conflict on the territory of the Republic of Croatia (1991-1995). A list is available at http://familylinks.icrc.org/croatia and http://www.hck.hr/upload_data/txt_editor/Sluzba%20trazenja/knjiga%20nestalih%20-%20listopad%202015.pdf.

The ICRC maintains a list of people who went missing between 1992 and 1995 in connection with the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina and who were reported to the ICRC by the families before 6 December 2011. The list is available at http://familylinks.icrc.org/bosnia. The ICRC remains responsible for the follow-up and management of the data.

The ICRC maintains a list of people missing in connection with the crisis in Kosovo (1998-2000) and the events in South Serbia in 2001. The list is available at http://familylinks.icrc.org/kosovo.

The Croatian Red Cross, the Department of Detained and Missing Persons of the Ministry of Veterans and the ICRC have produced a book with the names of people missing in connection with the armed conflict in the Republic of Croatia (last updated in 2012). The book can be consulted in the offices of the Croatian Red Cross.

We help to restore contacts between family members

The Croatian Red Cross helps people in Croatia restore and maintain contact with family members through Red Cross messages. This service is provided:

  • when loss of contact is due to armed conflict, other situations of violence, natural or man-made disasters, or migration;
  • for detainees; and
  • when other means of communication (telephone lines, postal system, etc.) are disrupted or not available;

or in other situations of humanitarian need, when possible.

We help to reunite families
In exceptional cases, the Croatian Red Cross helps reunite people living in Croatia with their families in Croatia or abroad when this is possible. In particular, we try to help people who are very vulnerable.

Any involvement in family reunification depends on authorization from the government authorities.

We provide other services
The Croatian Red Cross can try to find information for people who are worried about the health and well-being of a close family member with whom they have suddenly lost contact. We try to find information when there is evidence of the previous existence of regular contact.

The ICRC or the Croatian Red Cross may issue a Missing Person Confirmation Letter for family members of people who have gone missing if those persons were previously reported to the ICRC or to the Croatian Red Cross.
