The paper deals with the attitudes and opinions of Croatian displaced

persons towards Serbian population living in the Croatian

Danube basin, with regard to the Plan of Peaceful Reintegration,

personal characteristics, intention of return, experience

and relationship with the places of their exile and experience of

war and exile. The data were processed by means of a non-parametric

contingency analysis and relative frequency of the results.

lt was determined that the attitudes and opinions of the Croatian

displaced populations towards Serbian population correlate with

most of variables-predictors. The highest correlation was determined

between the variables describing the traumatic experience of

the war and exile and negative attitudes and opinions of the displaced

on the possibility that the Serbs would continue to live in

the Croatian Danube basin as well as on the prediction of their future

conduct. The general conclusion is that negative attitudes and

opinions of the displaced population based on the experience of

war and exile and emotional attachment to their places of exile. It

should be emphasised that the attitudes of the displaced are not

dominated by the aggressive feelings that could influence the behaviour

of the displaced. The displaced have formed their views

primarily on condition that their personal and family safety would

be ensured upon return. This should include a just, peaceful solution

valuing morality and human dimension of the causes of their

sufferings and traumatic experience as well as of the nature of the

conflict. The results, thus, exclude the possibility that negative attitudes

and opinions reflect any nationality-based prejudice.
