Te article shows the example of how the process of the inter-religious dialogue and cooperation went through during the war time in Croatia 1991-1995 and soon after that time. The incentive for the cooperation came from the members of two movements – from Cursillo, the laic Catholic movement and the MRA-IofC Moral Re-Armament and the Initiatives of Change. They all worked together in forgiveness, forgetting and reconciliation in this region. It shows how religious individuals and groups built the paths of peace together, starting with their faith and their own growth in love towards God and people. How the members of the Orthodox and Jewish religion joined that process of interreligious cooperation and, what is especially important, a great contribution was made by the Islamic community in Croatia led by mufti. That is how the members of the two aforementioned movements, each in their own way and inspired by their own religion, cooperated in introduction of a just peace. Tis is followed by a conclusion that in that process individuals and groups jointly contributed to peace and constructive cooperation within society, based on their own faith, tradition and spirituality, but without syncretism.
