Northern Ireland’s first programme reflecting on the worst atrocity on European soil since the Second World War is to inspire future generations that peace after conflict is possible. In July 1995, Bosnian Serb forces killed more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys simply because of their faith, in what is known as the Srebrenica genocide. […]
On Friday 19 July 2019, the Dutch Supreme Court ruled that the Dutch state had 10% liability for the deaths of 350 men and boys while under the protection of Dutch UN peacekeepers in July 1995, in a final verdict that ends a years-long legal battle between the Dutch state and the claimants, the Mothers of […]
Walking in solidarity with the survivors of the genocide, our Community Champions across the UK are organising Peace Walks, which mirror the “Mars Mira” walk which takes place annually from Tuzla to Srebrenica. Full details will be released about this year’s walks shortly, but if you would like to get involved with helping to organise or participate […]
In order to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, our fantastic Community Champions and volunteers have worked tirelessly to organise memorial events up and down the country to bring communities together.
The UK’s All Party Parliamentary Group on Srebrenica welcomes the decision of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals that found Radovan Karadžić guilty of genocide of Muslims in Srebrenica in 1995 and sentenced him to life in prison. It, therefore, condemns in the strongest manner the decision of the Republika Srpska National Assembly to […]
Remembering Srebrenica welcomes today’s news that Radovan Karadžić, former President of the Serbian Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (now the Republika Srpska) and the Supreme Commander of the Bosnian Serb armed forces has lost his appeal and been sentenced to life in prison.

Remembering Srebrenica is able to confirm that the terrorist who butchered innocent Muslim worshippers in the Christchurch Mosque attack was listening to a Serbian song glorifying Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadžić who was convicted for the 1995 genocide of Muslims on European soil in Srebrenica in Bosnia. Whilst driving en route to committing this atrocity, […]

Every year Remembering Srebrenica selects a theme that both reflects an aspect of the genocide that must be commemorated, but also speaks to communities here in the UK.
Local politicians, faith leaders, educators and activists gathered in London for an awards ceremony earlier this month to celebrate the contributions of individuals from across the capital who are bringing communities together to help tackle hatred and intolerance. The event was organised by Remembering Srebrenica’s London and South East Board and aimed to bring together […]
On 25th November, Minister for Faith, Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth officially opened ‘Bosnia House’ in Birmingham – the national Bosnian community centre that serves more than 10,000 Bosnians living in the UK. This was a historic moment for a community that survived genocide and ethnic cleansing in Europe and found refuge in the UK. Over […]
It is impossible to understand genocide in numbers alone, but with every name there is the story of a loved one buried in Potočari. By bearing witness to these stories we can truly learn the lessons from Srebrenica. @SrebrenicaUK
The strength and courage of the Mothers of Srebrenica is inspirational. These women who lost their families to genocide have tirelessly fought for their loved ones and to build a community without hate. @SrebrenicaUK
Through the Creative Youth Minds project, @ymcans led a Stoke delegation to #Srebrenica to learn of the genocide in 1995.
