    He was actually from BADIC, village close to city of Bosanska Krupa, Bosnia and Hercegovina and he was my great uncle. My mum was always telling us this story and nobody believed her until the digital age.His mother named one of the newborn babies as Husein Sivic so he was not forgotten in his family. Thanks for civilly keeping these records (all of valuable records of this sort are virtually destroyed on Balkans after/during every war happening there) and proving his adventurous nature and existence . R.I.P. dear uncle!
