Anamarija Batista and Goran Škofić in conversation with Irena Dlaka in Mali Lošinj in the summer of 2019. Goran also videorecorded the interview. Irena Dlaka is an art historian from Mali Lošinj.

Excerpt from the interview
ID: When the military was finally gone – they left the island on August 31, 1991, taking their stuff, taking all the fuel, and so on – the entire town was like, ‘what happens now?’ But then came September 1 and everything was fine. The first thing they did was go to Vela Straža.

AB: You mean the locals?

ID: Yeah. Because generations of people grew up here never having the chance to see their town from the famous viewpoint. Its name “Great Guard“ (Vela straža) say’s it’s the most important, not the highest. You can see everything from there. You can follow a ship sailing into the harbour. That was like, wow.
