A Catholic sister looks on during a ceremony of beatification of five catholic nuns brutally murdered during World War II. in Sarajevo, Bosnia, on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011. After decades of investigation and proof gathering, sisters of the order of "Daughters of the Love of God": Marija Jula Ivanisevic of Croatia, Marija Berchmana Leidenix of Austria, Marija Krizina Bojanc of Slovenia, Marija Antonija Fabjan of Slovenia and Marija Bernadeta Banja of Croatia were bona fide by a decree of Pope Benedict XVI. In 1942, the five nuns were taken away from their monastery in Pale near Sarajevo, the monastery was burned and they were imprisoned and tortured by Bosnian Serb paramilitary forces until they were killed in prison in Eastern Bosnian town of Gorazde, later that year.
