History[edit]

During the Bosnian War of the 1990s, the Serb forces temporally occupied the southern parts of the city of Mostar, including Rodoč. They burned down about 80% of the houses. Many people were either killed or taken to camps, predominantly in Bileća or in Montenegro. For the tortures in the camps located in Montenegro couple of people were prosecuted as war criminals in Montenegro. After the liberation of the southern parts of the city and Rodoč, many people returned to their homes.
