Ahead of the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, Vice-Chair of Remembering Srebrenica Scotland, Robert McNeil MBE, unveiled three of his paintings in a new exhibition at St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art. The artworks have been recently acquired by Glasgow Museums. ‘Witness’, ‘Subjugation’ and ‘Srebrenica Woman’ tell the story of the worst […]
Remembering Srebrenica strongly condemns the deplorable actions that were on display during a gathering of supporters of the far-right Chetnik paramilitary in Višegrad who came together to commemorate the arrest of their founder Draža Mihailović. Dressed in uniform, supporters were heard chanting songs containing shocking words such as “there will be hell, the Drina will be bloody, […]
We are absolutely disgusted that a bag of pig entrails was left at the Srebrenica genocide memorial on Orthodox Christmas Eve followed by the singing of fascist songs. This stands in contrast with the true meaning of Christmas, being that of love and unity. This vile, Islamophobic behaviour is not an isolated event, but comes […]
Remembering Srebrenica pays tribute to Lord Paddy Ashdown
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.

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 […]

We at Remembering Srebrenica, along with our 7 regional boards, 3 country boards and over 1,200 Community Champions stand in solidarity with the Jewish community in Pittsburg, the US and around the whole world. As we […]
Remembering Srebrenica are looking for volunteers to represent us at 5kms, 10kms, Half or Full Marathons anywhere in the UK.

If you are planning to take […]

On Monday 27th August, the Minister for Faith, Lord Bourne, made a poignant visit to Sarajevo and Srebrenica– the site of the worst atrocity on European soil since the Second World War. During the visit which has been organised by the UK charity Remembering Srebrenica, Lord Bourne heard testimony from survivors of genocide and ethnic […]
The recent assertion from the President of Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, that the 1995 Srebrenica genocide is ‘untrue’ is a dangerous attempt to rewrite history and stoke division. These comments only add further pain to the survivors of Srebrenica who have already suffered so much grief and loss caused by the genocide. Dr Waqar Azmi […]
It is with deep sadness that Remembering Srebrenica announces the death of Mother of Srebrenica, Hatidža Mehmedović. Hatidža was the beating heart of Remembering Srebrenica since the very start of the charity, speaking to hundreds of delegates over the years and bravely sharing her story to ensure the memory of her children lived on. […]
When asked whether he accepted the genocide at Srebrenica happened, Peter Handke dismissed the question as 'empty & ignorant'. This is yet another example of the crass & deplorable conduct that reinforces how disgraceful it is to award him the Nobel prize. https://t.co/ID7y5btI4M
'He did not calculate self-preservation into his decisions & sacrificed his work & life to do what was right. The least we can do is to remember him & honour his memory'. @hikmet_karcic on Dervis Korkut who helped save the Sarajevo Haggadah from the Nazis. https://t.co/nzhTUO8hvR
In the lead up to the holidays, we are suggesting books for people looking for something Bosnia related to read over the Christmas period. Our first book is @edvulliamy's "The War is Dead: Long Live The War" - an excellent introduction to what happened in Prijedor and Srebrenica.
Educating young people is an important part of what we do. If you are a #teacher and wish to know more about how you can bring the lessons from #Srebrenica into your school, contact our @KSrebrenica for more details!
It is important that students are able to recognise how hatred in society can lead to the unthinkable - genocide. Today at @SrebrenicaUK, we are dedicating a whole day to education, and how we can better equip young people to tackle hatred and learn the lessons from Srebrenica.
26 years ago yesterday I left #Prijedor with one of my sisters and had to leave mother and my other sister behind. That day was the last time I saw my grandma. Had to leave my own home my country in the middle of #Europe in 1993 just because I am #Muslim and because I am #Bosnian
