MAMULA ALL INCLUSIVE
The Mamula fortress on the island of Lastavica, at the very entrance to the Bay of Kotor, served as an infamous camp in which civilians were imprisoned, tortured and starved during both world wars. Ivo Marković was imprisoned in Mamula in 1942, as an eight-year-old, and he remembers well the torture of hundreds of civilians by the Italian fascists. The decision of the Government of Montenegro to give the island a concession in order to turn the fortress into an exclusive hotel deeply hurt and humiliated him. Although the government representatives claim that the investor has committed to build a „unique hotel, with a special memorial room“, Ivo Marković, together with other camp inmates, activists of non-governmental organizations and citizens, opposes that decision and begins the fight to preserve the memory of the innocent victims.
